Physical Description

A Turkish sash of hand-woven cotton crepe embroidered at the bottom with two rows of a large stylised flower and leaves in urns; 3 rows of small flowers in small urns; two geometric borders worked in pulled thread and surface stitches. Colours - mauves, pink, red, greens, blue and metal thread.The division between the groups of motifs indicates that this would have been originally a longer piece that would have been divided up the centre and used as a cord or sash threaded through the trouser tops and tied. (Barbara Rowney, 1991)
