The loom beaded strip is sewn onto cotton fabric. It has a white field. There are two incomplete diamonds, joined on one end, with the side points of the diamonds missing, replaced by two "hooks" that don't meet to close the shape. There is a light blue line down the length of the diamonds, crossed by three irregular lines in each diamond. Small dark blue trapezoids occupy the space outside the red design.
