The loom beaded strip is backed with black cotton. The pink field has a green border. The repeating design is a series of small white triangles on a green line which forms a long, thin pink diamond. The white triangles have green on two sides, and the triangles change orientation at the midpoint of the diamond. There are two small green diamonds in the center of the pink triangles.
