This small flat woven pouch is primarily a dark orange-red color. There is a vertical band of dark green diamonds and another vertical band of light brown diamonds with adjacent diamonds mixed with the field color, a dark orange-red. All of the diamonds are outlined with dark yellow which gives an argyle-like appearance. There is a dark green border at the opening on one side and a light brown border on the other.
