3rd Phase Chief Blanket : Jalucie Marianito : Churro 009-LA
Jalucie Marianito is weaving this amazing 3rd Phase Chief blanket using Native Churro wool, and and natural Indigo dye (made from the root of the plant).
She has her own unique style of weaving as you can see by the photo. She loves working with the colors of the Chief blanket and especially loves making the Third Phase Style. The lovely Jalucie is always in good spirits and such a pleasure to be around, as are all of the weavers we work with.
This blanket was started in May 2014, and Jalucie Marianito was almost finished with her 3rd Phase Chief Blanket when she noticed that it was not going to be square. She has flipped the weaving and is starting over! The new weaving is at the bottom of the loom and she is reusing the Churro wool from the weaving at the top of the loom.
Perfection in the works, Thanks Jalucie!
“The Navajos don’t have chiefs, but other tribes do. Plains Indians were considered rich if the chief wore a Diné blanket. That’s why these are called chief’s blankets.” —Barbara Ornelas
