We bought this material in India in 1977 and have never used it. It is black muslin with yarn embroidery and mirrors on it. It is two pieces sewn together at the sides. The back piece is solid black muslin. It would make a wonderful large pillow or a wall hanging or many other uses. The material measures 24 inches by 24 inches at the narrowest place and 24 inches by 30 inches at the widest place. It is in excellent unused condition.
