    The Newberry Collection of Islamic Embroideries

    Linked red squares are arranged as a continuous grid design; they are embroidered with slanted, counted filling stitch worked in diagonal rows. Fine brown lines between the squares define four tiny crosses and a small circle in the centre. They are embroidered in double running stitch.

    There are two rolled hems on two sides of the textile, and a third hem sewn with ?backstitch.
