- Weft-faced plain weave.
- One warp-wise edge was folded twice, leaving the raw edge outside, and sewn with a row of overcast stitches along the outside edge and a row of running stitches along the inside edge. The overcast stitches measure from 0.2 cm to 0.9 cm. The running stitches measure from 0.4 cm to 0.7 cm long. Both yarns appear to be the same. At one end of the hem there are two different brown yarns, possibly used to attach another piece of fabric. The light brown stitches measure from 1.3 cm to 2.3 cm long. The only measurable dark brown stitches are approximately 0.9 cm long.
- Dirty and worn. There is a large interior slit, as well as two edge tears. Several small pieces of yarn, including a piece of goat hair yarn, have adhered to the surface. Edges are frayed, including inside edges of the interior slit.
