Robin's Pick of the Week

TWO GREY HILLS NAVAJO RUG : ELSIE BIA : CHURRO 1563 

Hot off the loom and beautiful!!!

This is a very special weaving for us.  In March 2018 at the Nizhoni Ranch Gallery opening of the Timeless Treasures of Two Grey Hills Exhibit,  Master weaver Elsie Bia was here demonstrating her skills while weaving this Two Grey Hills.  She was so gracious to allow us to watch her weave.  It was such a rare opportunity!

Elsie told us the border gave her the fits, and ever the perfectionist she took it out several times before she was pleased!  Take a close look at the border design and you will understand.

This weaving is a tribute piece to Ellen Begay who was from the Three Turkey Ruin area.  Elsie's version has vegetal dyed indigo blue highlights.  It is 3' x 5'.
