Plain weave cotton embroidered with silk in surface darning on the diagonal and running stitch, backed with plain weave silk, faced with bias-cut plain weave silk and with an interlining of plain weave indigo-dyed cotton. The white ground is divided into a square grid by S-motifs, similar to those found in Turkish Bird Ushak carpets. Each square contains a blue lozenge from which emerge four red leaves (a pin-wheel effect). There is a border which is missing along one side, containing coloured diamonds and geometric motifs on a light brown ground. The missing border was not cut but simply never there. If a grid was initially marked onto the ground fabric, it was not accurately followed by the embroiderer because the lines of the motifs are not straight. Colours (Embroidery threads, 2S silk); white, red, brown, light brown, green, red [faded to pink], yellow, black, dark blue, light blue, dark red [at one end of the cover - this might be a repair?]; (Facing): gold silk plain weave [faded from a deeper gold]; (Backing): green silk plain weave.
