SOLD Twill Raised Outline / Chinle Navajo Weaving : Marilyn Scott : 1994

In the 1950-60s, weavers in the Coal Mine Mesa area developed a style called Raised Outline in which they outline the designs in alternating colors which creates a raised or dimensional effect. The technique only affects one side of the weaving, so in effect you have two designs in one rug.

"At first, the rugs were done by alternating two colors in the wefts, creating a shaded background. "The style was further elaborated by producing raised outlines where two colors join... by passing the wefts at the juncture over two warps instead of the usual one" (M. Rodee, "Weaving of the Southwest," p. 215)."  

In this beautiful piece, Master weaver Marilyn Scott combined the Chinle design with the Raised Outline style of weaving creating a dramatic and distinguished combination.  This piece of art was woven using all natural, vegetal dyes where the colors were obtained from plants, stones, or even insects.

The judges at the 2016 Gallup Inter-tribal Ceremonial agree. They awarded this fine piece 2nd place.  This piece would look handsome displayed on a wall, as a rug, over a piece of furniture, or even as a table centerpiece. There are so many options to share this piece with your guests.
