Burntwater Navjo Weaving : Roselyn Begay : 2097
Burntwater rugs were developed by Don Jacobs in the 1960s and are similar to Two Grey Hills designs but are woven using vegetal dyes. Warm earth tones are common, as are beautiful pastels. They feature a strong central design and geometric symmetry.
All of that is evident in this example of the Burntwater style. The colors in this piece are so rich and deep. When a weaver uses vegetal dyes, it means that all of the wool colors you see are either the natural color of the wool - as in the variegated grays, or derived from insects, stones, and plants found in the area. The richness in this piece is just magnificent.
