Small, rectangular, multicoloured, embroidered bag, with three edges closed, one edge left open to form a flat bag. The closed edges are trimmed with blue and white beading, and the open edge is bound with purple silk. Embroidered designs are worked in orange thread on a red ground, with small touches of purple, green, and bright pink. Embroidered designs are geometric, consisting of whorls and x-shaped figures, organized into border designs, squares and rectangles. Rows of metallic and red sequins are used to accent the shapes within the design field. The embroidery is backed with rust coloured silk or cotton textile. The two sides of the flat bag are identical in colour and style of embroidery, but differ slightly in the choice of motifs.
