The minor border is composed of a meander with eight-pointed stars and leaves. The color palette is composed of 100% natural dyes, mainly madder red and indigo blue.
In worn condition commensurate with its considerable age. Low pile, some areas are worn through to the foundation with holes. Airy yet heavy handle.
