It conjures thoughts of all those brilliant yellow, red, blue and green textiles and beads that cut through Tibet's snowy landscape, and on a more literal level represents the traditional striped aprons worn in the region.

I love the comparison Courtney! You are right, the colors and the widths are spot on.
