History of Teec Nos Pos Rugs
Widely considered to be the most intricate and detailed of all Navajo rug design, Teec Nos Pos Rugs offer a truly exceptional and distinct look. Named after a location important to the Navajo, this “Ring of Cottonwood Trees” has produced two distinct styles that have both long been influenced by the tightly-woven, brightly-colored Persian rugs of the Middle East. Large, bold and colorful, Teec Nos Pos boast a weaving unlike any other.  Located in the northeast corner of Arizona, Teec Nos Pos rugs rose to prominence in 1905, spinning off of J.B. Moore’s Crystal Weaving Style. Since that time, Teec Nos Pos rugs have most often displayed one of two unique stylizations—one boasting elaborate geometric motifs and the other a collection of zig zag patterns with distinct borders. The zigzag patterns being the only designs to be carried forward from the pre-1900 blanket designs.
