A woman's wool apron, square in shape, and made of one piece of black weft faced tabby woven cloth. Stripes (woven as bands) are evenly spaced across the 'ground'. Mid-green stripes alternate with a linear flower and foliage pattern, embroidered (?) in yellow, two tones each of pink, blue and green wool yarns, and green cotton thread. Towards each side is a framed vertical pattern comprising elongated double diamonds, worked in tapestry weave, using the same materials. The sides and hem are embroidered with blanket stitch using green wool. The top has four darts, machine stitched. The apron ties are formed from one long cotton tablet woven braid which is stitched along the top of the apron. It has red and green yarns in the centre, framed by a white dentate pattern, and a black edge.
