NOTE ON IMAGES: Our last picture above in extreme close-up is over-exposed to better reveal the tiny pinstripes and it shows a lighter shade of the chocolate (Hershey Brown?) fabric; the color of the other pictures better render the fabric background color. Please use our text descriptions of colors to complement pictures, as colors vary on different devices.
