Hand Woven Navajo Rugs
Navajo rugs are a representation of the landscape and life in the southwest United States. Distinct styles emerged due to the fact that early weavers rarely saw the weavings of others, so individual styles developed in specific regions.
Traditional weavers, even today, raise their own sheep and wool and process the sheared wool themselves - washing, carding, dyeing and spinning. They either use the wool in its natural color or dye it with natural dyes. However, some weavers of the last 40-50 years have used commercially spun and dyed wool yarns.
Rugs are typically woven by sitting at a loom and weaving from the bottom upwards. Most rugs are woven using classic designs and techniques but new styles are evolving that utilize blends or variations of traditional styles.
A Navajo rug is like any other piece of art - if you like it, that is what matters.
"The rug arrived in good condition and is beautiful - the colors are lovely. I favor Blue Canyon raised outline rugs and I now own 4 woven by Lena Curtis (sometimes spelled Curtiss) rugs - this is clearly her work and done earlier in her career than the others of hers that I own (a bit less complex in design than most of the rugs she currently weaves). I'm happy to have it and thank you for offering it." - Janis
