Description

This is a woven sash with twisted fringes. The sash has an orange and light orange (possibly white with transferred color) vertical striped center, with bands of solid orange, green, and black above and below. There is a light orange arrowhead pattern over the top of the vertical stripes.

The fringes are the same colors, arranged in the same bands, with some intermingling.
