Dark beige goat's wool woman's shawl with a narrow frame of pink and orange embroidery running along most of the length of the selvedges and across the width towards the ends, leaving a large plain field at the centre and a smaller palin panel at each end. In each corner of the central field is an embroidered kunjbuta motif of a flower stem, worked in the same threads as the frame.
