Description
Long narrow fabric length featuring a gathered curved section at one end. The ramie is printed with imagery of the spring magnolia blossoms in red, white and green on a paler pink background. Centrally, an area of embroidery done in black video tape forms a pattern in the shapes featured on Buddhist monks garments and wrapping cloths.
