A woman's wool apron. Rectangular in shape with pink flowers on a black ground. Made of one piece of tapestry woven wool fabric, with pink blooms of different sizes, and two blue flowers, with green foliage. A band of geometric motifs across the bottom of the apron. White cotton thead has been used to highlight some of the motifs. The sides and hem have blocks of blanket stitch, embroidered in pink, purple, yellow, red, blue, orange, and green wool yarns. A line of silver-coloured rick rack (synthetic) is machine stitched along the lower half of the apron's sides and the hem. The top of the apron is turned over and tacked in place, hiding from view one purple and one green band. The apron ties, sewn to the top corners, are made from pink and dark blue plaited wool cord.
