Literature

Tan and white triangles around the border. Red, white and three shades of tan used for the main design in the center. Tan grid lines with red squares at intersecting points. The main motif is a simplified vine and leaf pattern. The original colors were probably green and yellow, both now faded to shades of brown and turkey red.
