Pair of hair ties. At one end of each tie, the threads are woven together. At the base of the weave there are white beads alternating with pink and yellow fibre that is wrapped around the base threads. There are three sections of white beads and two sections of wrapped thread. Below the pattern of beads and wrapped thread there is a purple tassel and at the end of each tassel there is either a round metal disc or a white bead. Two wrapped sections emerge from the tassel; these sections again alternate between white beads and wrapped thread. At the end of each of the two wrapped sections there is a tassel, similar to that found in the centre of the tie. At the end of each of the threads of the tassels there is either a round, metal disc or a white bead.


The collector purchased the ties from a bazaar, in either the city of Zebak or the town of Ishkashim.
