Master Weavings of the Navajo Churro Collection
From the Getzwiller Exclusive Navajo Churro Collection
Steve and Gail's love of Navajo weaving started as a passion for collecting, that morphed into a business and then into a gallery. In the 1990's they started the Navajo Churro Collection - providing the weavers with Navajo Churro Wool that was custom spun and hand dyed with the finest natural and aniline dyes available. The real artistry comes from the weavers magically putting the wefts into a spacial design - that is at times beyond belief.
In this Navajo rug Helene Nez has created a Yei pictorial with a Teec Nos Pos border. There are three Yei in this piece - two yei on either side with valero stars, and inside the central diamond, a corn yei.
Helene Nez is an extremely talented weaver. She has won many awards for her outstanding skill and eye for detail.
