Rectangular piece of cotton cloth. The cloth has been tie-dyed with indigo creating a dark blue field with concentric circles of light blue to white cloth. Along two sides, the circles are incomplete because they were too large for the cloth, and on the other two sides there are large areas of undecorated dark blue.
