A very narrow band of repeat stylised flowers, similar to those above the boats, within green foliage arcades, is at the extreme ends of the towel. Stitching is reversible. Green, pink, and yellow silk and coppery metallic threads. Turkish two-sided stitch (Musabak stitch), double running and double darning stitches have been used.
