From a mummy
Apparently wrapping for a mummy bale with incorporated apron-like piece which has rows of pleating on both sides.
According to the catalogue records, this is a garment. Currently unable to read this as a garment. Multiple layers attached in a patchwork type construction. "Apparently wrapping for a mummy bale with incorporated apron-like piece which as rows of pleating on both sides". Some plain weave textile and some striped. One open weave section (layer) with a chevron design near "neck". Color(s): mainly undyed tans and off-white, but one area of striped material containing a blue/green stripe.
