Saddle Blanket - Navajo Teec Nos Pos Single Sunday : Historic : GHT 2125

Some saddle blankets were woven to be used only on special occasions. They were known as Sunday Saddle Blankets.

This particular saddle blanket would be an extra special Sunday Saddle Blanket.  

Most saddle blankets were woven with a plain center as no one would see it.  It was a way to conserve the more expensive dyed wool.  BUT the weaver who brought this piece to life, did it with a bang!   The designs in this piece tell us its from the Teec Nos Pos area of the reservation.  The lovely double borders are filled with color and action.  The center of the piece has been woven with beautiful colored stripes.  It has a full and generous fringe made with Germantown wool.
