Incomplete. White cotton; loose weave with tapestry ends in colored pattern and ends in pairs but held together at fringe. Ends in two pieces.

*note, measurements were taken of the added length of the pieces, minus the strayed tangled yarns. The bulk of the belt, the undecorated part, is in undyed cotton, with a 2x1 weave pattern (doubled weft). The decorated parts are done in an undefined type of dyed yarn in a tapestry weave, which then break down into a mass of loose yarns (red and dark brown, mostly). There is a knot holding together the belt at the undecorated part, though the decorated part is separated. Color(s): off-white/undyed, red, ochre, blue, dark brown, and tan. .
