Some of the velvet trim has torn off along one side, but it is all still there. Some of the other velvet on the outer edges has become loose on the underside.
There are numerous pieces of orange showing where I believe the metallic thread part has worn off. When you look at the other side, you can see that an unbelievable amount of work went into hand sewing this. I cant imagine how much time and effort it took to make it.
Im sure that the design itself is evidence of where it is from. All I know is that it is beautiful!
