This group of sale items are from our current show that is up at the gallery - In Transition. The following weavings are from the Transitional period, approximately late 1880's to 1910's. The Transitional period refers to the time frame when weavers transitioned from weaving primarily wearing blankets to rugs and other textiles at the suggestion of the traders. The traders saw the market for rugs on the East coast and wanted to take advantage of that. The Transitional Period was prior to when regional styles became the norm. Therefore the weavers had "carte blanche" as far as designs. Very interesting time in the life of Navajo art!
