The white cotton sash has fringe on one end and wool decoration on top. It has a red stripe down the center with an animal (possibly a llama) near either end. The space between has a zigzag with triangles nestled in the spaces and checkerboard-like designs at either end. The narrower green stripes have a sawtooth pattern along the length of the red zigzag and "x's" along the length of the checkerboards.
