Desiring a lighter, airier quality an openwork background was created by using a tight wrapping stitch on a plain woven linen fabric leaving the unaltered cloth as the decorative element. The figural subject matter, St. George and the Dragon and an angel, suggests that this strip was created as part of a religious vestment or parament.
