Germantown Style Navajo Weaving : Vina Nakai : 3172

The 1880s brought the Navajo an influx of Germantown 3 and 4 ply, aniline dyed yarn supplied by the government and local traders.  It's bright and bold colors of greens, blues, yellows, and reds quickly found their way into Navajo weavings. The colors were so bold and brilliant that it gave way to to the "eye dazzler" style of weaving.  

Contemporary weavers of today still embrace this style. Master Weaver Vina Nakai brought this brilliant piece to life.  The judges at the 2015 Gallup Inter-Tribal Ceremonial felt it's energy and awarded it second place as a Germantown Reproduction weaving.  This piece is just spectacular!
