Saddle Blanket - Single Sunday Navajo Weaving : Historic : PC 119

Some saddle blankets were woven to be used only on special occasions. They were known as Sunday Saddle Blankets, and this one is extra fancy.  

Used for special occasions to throw over the saddle, not under it.  The weaver of this one added a longer fringe/tassel up both sides to help protect it, and provide a more complex display.  

Created using Germantown yarn, this piece also has the original fringe and tassels. This beautiful piece was featured in the Navajo Textiles as Modern Art exhibit held at Nizhoni Ranch Gallery March 11 - June 30 2017. Check out the catalog Navajo Textiles As Modern Art on page 34 for a little extra on this weaving.
