Patchwork reindeer hide border of a rough quarter-circular shape. The geometric decoration is arranged in strata, and is mirrored on the opposite side. The outermost layer is white, followed by brown then a harlequin triangle motif of white and black, matched with grey or faded brown. The centremost strip has a pattern of repeating squares in white, chocolate brown and chestnut brown, and is quite faded toward the proper left end.
