Square yellow, green and white silk scarf. One corner has been dyed green, with parts protected from the dyebath by tying (shibori technique), leaving them decorated with a radiating pattern of white and green. These parts have been untied but retain the shape of the area which was tied, so that there are narrow peaks all over this part of the cloth. The remainder of the cloth is dyed pale yellow. Hemmed around all four edges.
