Welcome to Nizhoni Ranch Gallery!
This weaving used plate XXI, a beautiful adaptation of a JB Moore- Crystal weaving. Tightly woven with hand spun, hand carded native wool. The variegation in the browns is incredible. The red is aniline dyes which was hand dyed by the weaver.
116″ x 58″ (9'8" x 4'10")
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.
Ganado - Klagetoh
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.
