Rectangular, blue, tabby-woven cotton textile. According to associated documentation it is a man's wrap woven on a woman's loom. The textile is sewn together from 3 pieces of approximately equal width. Each is decorated with 2 alternating stripes. One is a pair of solidly coloured light, and mid blue stripes. These alternate with a light blue banded stripe on the indigo ground. The warp creates an integral fringe on the shorter sides.
