It is definitely embroidery, but … why?
I can’t imagine wearing it as a scarf (“Oh, How lovely that looks around your neck!”)
I can’t envision as a placement (“Just set your plate right here over the gaping stub of the neck … Don’t worry about the stains.”)
I can’t see it as a kerchief for a bedside table (“Don’t worry about a thing, dear. Lay your spectacles on the kerchief and your scabbard by the bed, and then rest your heavy head on the pillow. I’ll won’t leave you … “)
I suppose it’s just a … warning notice?
