Woollen and cotton cloth, possibly a mat or fan. Plain woven: undyed woollen warps: dyed blue, yellow, green, red, purple wool and bleached cotton. This combination of warps and wefts has been used to create geometric patterns, with two alternating designs in the broad bands. The cloth is edged on one side with a blue braid sewn on. There have been some weaknesses in the past which have been reinforced with black cotton stitching. The cloth is hemmed at either end.
