Description"Pillow Top. The design of this light-brown monk's cloth pillow top was taken off an old beaded tobacco pouch belonging to the Sioux. There is an Indian head in the center embroidered in red, blue, white, green, yellow, orange, pink and maroon. A black border surrounds this. The top is 24 inches square. In order to preserve their designs, the Sioux frequently copied them on pieces such as this."
