head cloth. Originally in four squares: one section red and white narrow loom strip with floated fret design plain brown sections and one plain yellow.

Cloth appears to be constructed out of four squares stitched together. Two are plain weave and brown. One is yellow in a looser weave (crepe?) and one in a red and white striped construction (brocade). Though a fragment, bits of all selvages exist, so size can roughly be determined. Color(s): Four squares make up this textile (two brown, one red and white striped and the other yellow).
