Crystal Navajo Weaving: Grace Brown : B-18

In the mid 1940s the borderless, vegetal designs became established as the Crystal style.  This area's style of weaving of today is sometimes confused with the Wide Ruins and Chinle area banded design rugs.

One area of distinction is the more extensive use of the natural wool colors with the vegetal tones.  The combination is very pleasing to the eye as well as being compatible with most contemporary decor. 

This gorgeous rug is attributed to Grace Brown and features all natural dyes, hand-carded, hand-spun native wool.  The colors in this piece are outstanding.

The photo below depicts weaver Grace Brown with another weaver of hers with a similar style. Standing next to her is Steve Getzwiller and his daughter, Jamie.
