Transitional Navajo Rug w/ Chevrons
Transitional Navajo Rug circa the late 1890's when the Navajo were changing weaving styles from wearing blankets to floor coverings.
Heavy Hudson Bay and Pendleton blankets had replaced their own traditional wares and traders like JB Moore were working to have the Navajo weavers make floor coverings instead. This is a product of that period, with a rectangular boarder that has grey/brown strips outside it at each end.
Large, bold chevrons of black and red adorn the rest of the design, woven by a talented craftswoman 100 years ago.
Hand-carded, native wool with red dye. Soft underfoot. Some small holes, one the size of a quarter from a century of use on the floor.
