Visual Description : This runner is dyed in the colours of royal, navy, and pale blue; red and rust; pink and cream. There are six borders surrounding the centre. The first border is a simple navy line. This is followed by a pink border with cream, blue, and rust coloured flowers. The third border consists of a navy, blue, and rust line. The fourth border is thick and consists of patterns that look like turtles on a royal blue background. The next two borders are the same as the second and third ones, but in alternating order. The centre pattern consists of blue squares, octagons, and rectangles, with tiny pink, rust, and cream squares or circles. The design is very complex; however, the colour scheme remains the same throughout.
