Optical-Bistie Navajo Rug : Historic : GHT 252

Optical Navajo Rug, Lincoln wool with over dyed grey and natural wool color. Until the 1930's, crystal rugs were bordered with a central design woven in natural colors along with some use of red.  Hand-carded, hand-spun, hand-dyed wool. 

More recently Steve has concluded that this most likely was woven in the Bistie Area due to the over dyed grey which was a common practice in the area.

This weaving was part of an Exhibition showing at the Tucson Desert Art Museum January 4 2017 to April 30 2017 – Please look at the Dazzled Eye catalog on page 24 to find this weaving.
