baldric

Rectangular length of cloth, finely woven with a central row of diamond shapes of different sizes in the weave. Two darker stripes in the warp with a more complex weave at the end of each stripe divide the cloth into three sections. The warp ends are finished with tassels contained within what appear to be tiny plastic tubes, forming a fringe at each end.
