The external sides of the box, the interior bottom and the external side of the lid are covered with pile woven fabric. The interior sides, exterior bottom and the interior side of the lid are covered with woven textile fabric. The interior bottom and exterior top of the lid are cushioned with foam. There is a small textile fabric loop attached at the front of the lid as a means of opening and closing the box. The exterior top of the lid is decorated with beads, embroidered stitches and trimmings.

The two gift bags are made of an organza fabric panel made in part with metalized yarns. The panel is folded in half and sewn closed on two sides. The third side is hemmed and left opened. Attached onto one side is a textile cord with tassels. The gift bags measures approximately 14 1½”x 6” and 5 ½” x 4 ¼”.
