Dye analysis is an important element of research on a textile; it can reveal methods of construction that are unexpected and otherwise invisible to the naked eye. In the multi-band images of this fragment, there is an inconsistency visible in the lower lefthand corner. This unexpected presence of indigo indicates a change in the threads not based on the pattern of the textile. The difference between these threads and those of the rest of the color section is clear in magnified images. This could be the result of a different dye batch, and could possibly help in confirming its relationship to other similar textiles if they are ever to be located.
