Transitional Navajo Rug w/ Chevrons


Navajo Artist

Transitional Navajo Rug circa the late 1890's when the Navajo were changing weaving styles from wearing blankets to floor rugs. Heavy Hudson Bay and Pendleton blankets had replaced the Navajo’s own traditional weavings and traders like JB Moore were working to have the Navajo artisans make floor coverings instead. This is a product of that period, with a rectangular boarder that has grey/brown stripes outside of the border at each end. Large, bold chevrons of black and red adorn the rest of the design, woven by a talented craftswoman 100 years ago.
