The Cleveland Museum of Art in Cleveland, Ohio, houses a panel that was probably meant for a pair of woman's trousers. The fragment measures 51 x 51 cm and is made with silk thread embroidery. The embroidery consists of diagonal bands in the Naqsh tradition.

See another Naqsh embroidery panel, also in the Cleveland Museum of Art (acc. 1916.1307).
