The design of this almost perfectly preserved belt in slit-tapestry weave is planned in paired units. Each unit is made up of two long rectangles with abutting solid fields of contrasting colors (blue/gold or red/blue) with their inner sides stepped downward to an edge, this edge reversing with each pair. The reserved central portion has six descending stepped bands in contrasting colors, with the addition of black and white bands. Two equally-spaced vertical stripes separate the whole into three segments of two pairs each.
