The garment is made with three cloth panels. It is characterized by a combination of warm colors such as red and orange, and cool colors, such as blue and purple. The center panel and parts of the side panels stand out because of the geometrical supplementary weft brocades, especially the multicolored rhombuses. The white lower part features small, hand-embroidered colorful figures and a red, zigzagging line at the foot of each cloth panel.
