The rectangular weaving has cotton warp and wool weft. It has formerly white fringe on the short ends and a red field. It has white bars with a thin black line that are 1/4 of the distance from the ends. There are four sets of two black arrows pointing to the non-fringed edges. There is one set between the white bar and the fringed end and two sets in the area between the white bars and the fourth set at the other end.
