Rectangular rust colored loose knit plaid shawl with fringe at both ends. Rust colored thread comprises most of the weft and the warp is mostly comprised of a purple thread. Two plaid stripes run vertically on each end and are yellow, black and purple. Two plaid stripes run horizontally across the shawl and are blue, black, magenta, yellow, brown and orange. On the outer horizontal sections there are small green and orange stripes running the length of the shawl. The fringe at both ends is multicolored. There is a visible machine stitched line in black thread intertwined with purple thread running down the right side and around the bottom corner. It also runs along the bottom left and up the left side, stops at the top, then starts again horizontally across the top and ends at a hole approximately two-thirds across.
