The loom beaded strip has a black field and orange border. There are two alternating repeating designs. One is an orange "X" overlaid with a green "X." Yellow chevrons nestle into the space on either side. That pattern alternates with small yellow chevrons with the points together and a larger green chevron behind it, entirely outlined in orange.
