Hard to photograph. The photos where it looks grey are to show the detail but it is very definitely Black.
Dressy black fabric covered with very three-dimensional roses. The best part is that you can decide how much ruffle you want by pressing so it is not necessarily bulky. In one of the photos you can see underneath the ruffled strips.
It's a small piece but I can image splitting it to create a longer piece to use as a accent. It's very light weight
