The square weaving has white fringe on two sides. It has a light grey field with clusters of dark grey, medium grey, and white bands about 1/3 of distance from the ends. The dark grey bands on the edges of the clusters are broken, giving the edges a "toothed" look. The center design is a serrated diamond in medium grey, dark grey, and white.
