Long, rectangular, leather pillow constructed from one piece of leather with thick brown fringe on each of the shorter ends. On the top side there is a black line across the centre of the pillow and a set of identical designs on either end. On the bottom of the pillow is a long central panel of yellow leather running the length of the pillow. Pillows such as these were used as support for sleeping or sitting and would usually be stuffed with fibre.
