Visual Description : This woven bag is rectangular in shape; however, the opening is wider than the bottom. Triangles and zig-zags are the central motifs of the bag. On one side, there are three vertical sections with a repetitous triangle image. The centre section has diamond-shaped images in green and mustard, with small black and fushia triangles around the main ones. This image is repeated five times. The images flanking either side of the central area are a series of triangles stacked one on top of the other. The same colours are maintained. The design on the reverse side is a series of horizontal zig-zags with smaller triangles along both sides. The colours are neutral and black. Along the base of the bag is a thick horizontal band on both sides for extra support. The bag opens with the use of a drawstring that is woven along the mouth of the bag.
