Sorry to say this is a cursive script. As a rule in cursive script the radical called 糸偏 mi-pian (silk radical, Kangxi radical No.120) is written clearly as you can see it on your bristol.
That is to say, 緄 is not 鯤. 緄 Gun means "Ourler ou liserer un vetement"
On the bristol around the phoenix what I can see are only border patterns or repeating units of design, which are very common in on Chinese art textiles, such as clouds and thunders, and a ribboned "ruyi"
Maybe, the more correct translation would be of
緄鳳 - Embroidered border with phoenix
I hope you will not take it amiss.
