Fabric Type: Lightweight woven silk, slightly textured with interwoven designs; selvage on each side. 

Colors: light tan-orange color background with various flowers arranged in staggered rows and small flowers; note also the interwoven textured designs in the background which seem to be evocative of water or streams' Flowers are are in burgundy red, dark and plain olive-greens.

Condition: Excellent.
