Description Rows of running hares (alternately upside down) and trees (lying on their sides) suggest that this textile was to be viewed from different directions, perhaps as a covering for a floor or cushion. The twill weave, a relatively new technique at the time, has produced a heavy, durable fabric, well suited to withstand the substantial wear such a covering would experience.
