Fragment

Start collecting

Fragment of a band with an interlaced motif woven with yellow wool on a ground of dark neutral green wool. The main area is filled with a row of rosettes; and each of the two sides contains a row of octagons. The details of the design are formed by a flying shuttle. Probably a fragment of a garment.
