    The Newberry Collection of Islamic Embroideries

    Two wide bands are filled with a diagonal grid design, made up from S-shapes linked with small diamonds. Each grid space contains a rosette with a four-armed spiral.

    The bands fill the entire width of two pieces of cloth, which are sewn together with a flat seam; in addition there is a rolled hem along one side.
