A silk and cotton mix sari woven in red, green and black to give a shot effect. The border edges are of heavier silk in oranges, reds and gold, with a chevron pattern created from an ikat technique in deep purple. The end piece is quite short and in bands of shot orange and pale green (at both ends). The blouse pieces usually attached to the end seems to have been removed.
