    This cloth has pink warp threads and some pink weft threads. It is decorated with stripes, diamonds, 'kaap' (house gables), a four-legged creature, and the popular fringe pattern ('soi saa'). The decoration is produced with both continuous and discontinuous supplementary weaving using yarns of various colours and metal-wrapped threads.
