The narrow cylindrical woven tube has one end that is left open with the fibers loose. The other end is also open, though the fibers have been gathered into five small woven bands, the ends in a large knot (except for one, which is loose). The woven portion is light brown, with diagonal stripes in light natural and dark brown.
