Miniature TapestryKlagetohNavajo Weaver Matilda Yazzie Bia8" x 10"
Miniature tapestries are unique in Navajo weaving – since the early 1970’s they have been woven by just a few extended families from The Sawmill/White Clay area of the Navajo reservation. They have evolved into their own distinctive type of Navajo weaving collectible.

Elsie shares, "My favorite designs are Burntwater, Wide Ruin, Ganado Red and Teec Nos Pos. Weaving rugs is a Navajo tradition and it is passed down by my family, and I Love to weave. It is my only income and it helps me a lot. I enjoy doing my work. It takes lots of time, not only to weave but all of the math and counting. I just love wha...

This absolutely stunning Ganado - Klagetoh weaving by Master Weaver Mae Jean Chester brings together all things great about Navajo woven art. The muted colors in this piece are perfectly matched - the shades of brown and cream in a zig-zag pattern in the background create an "eye dazzler" or optical effect with motion.

With lines so tight and crisp, this piece looks like an illustration rather than a piece of art you can hold in your hands and wrap around you.
The ganado red jumps off of this piece as if it shot from a cannon! This piece won 1st Place at the 1979 New Mexico State Fair.

Wow! What a gorgeous Ganado rug! We are honored to have had other pieces by Master Weaver Grace Hendersen Nez, and this is a beautiful example of her craftsmanship. She hand-carded, hand-spun, and hand dyed Native wool for this piece. The way she infused the zig-zag edges to the design give it a dimensional quality. This is a stunning piece of a...
The Ganado Trading Post is the namesake for the Ganado style of Navajo weaving. One of the owners loved the natural sheep wool colors, another liked bright colors. A compromise was made, and it was decided that they would only carry aniline red, blue, and black dyes. Ganado weavings are recognized by their strong red background.

The Hubble Trading Post at Ganado would commission weavings from select weavers. This is one of those. This commissioned weaving has many of the same design elements as do the large room sized rugs - the hooked arrows, the cut diamonds, etc.
One of the unique features of this piece, though is the addition of the four pictorial elements which...

This is an excellent example of a Ganado - Klagatoh regional weaving. The crisp Ganado red sets off this weaving in a magnificent way. The lovely hooks which play such an important role in this piece demonstrate design elements that the Navajo borrowed from oriental rugs. The weaver wove feathers in the central margins of the piece. Look at t...
Now this is a very unusual Ganado - Klagetoh treat for a couple of beautiful reasons. First of all, it was woven as a runner - narrow, and very long. This piece is 11 feet long!
Secondly, look at the two stalks of corn, the symbol for life, in the center of the design. And beautiful displays of bows and arrows and feathers to showcase the co...
This exquisite piece is a Ganado - Klagetoh design from the Hubble Trading Post. The Master weaver responsible for this piece had a keen eye for color, pattern, and symmetry. Every design element works together perfectly - from the angles of the stepped border to the wonderful sawtooth central belted diamonds.

Spiderwoman blessed the weaver of this spectacular piece with a great eye for detail. When you look at this piece with a first glance you see a handsome double T as the fourth border of this piece.
