This embroidered sash is constructed from four separate pieces of fabric. The end tails are made from the unbleached material, and the center strip is made from two pieces of lighter blue duck cloth that are joined at the center. Each of those midsection pieces of material have been folded over so that there is only a seam on one side. Intricate geometric patterns are embroidered on the tail pieces in shades of red, green, orange and blue. The patterns are composed on lines, diamonds, circles, and rectangles. The long blue midsection is adorned with white decorative stitching in a continuous pattern of curves and peaks. Two lines of the white stitching border the midsection piece. The sash resembles a man's necktie in shape, but on a larger scale. (see dimensions). The tail ends come to a point at their tips and the edges are loop-stitched with a heavy thread that is an intense shade of red (pink). There is also a heavy black thread that is threaded along the entire length of the midsection, but only on one side. The tail on that side has also been loop-stitched with the same black thread. These appear to be modifications made after manufacture, but for what purpose is not clear as all of the original seams are still in place.
