This textile is thought to have also been a bag face, since the fabric selvages can be seen on both sides. The fabric size is 11 x 19cm and is a weft woven linen with silks of pink, indigo, blue and yellow and brown. The decoration is lozenge shaped with associated tassels. Possibly 14th century, it was sold by Christie’s for £3,750 (or $7,631).
