Eye dazzlers are certainly a descriptive name for these pieces! As Navajo weavings go, these were first seen in the 1870-80's, as the Santa Fe railroad brought settlers to the West, and trading posts carried synthetic dyes and commercial yarns in beautiful colors from Germantown Pennsylvania.

The love and fascination with this style of weaving has continued for over 100 years. Frances Begay brings us this stunning Germantown Eye Dazzler. This piece is made from 100% hand dyed Churro wool. It's 31" x 48" and earned 2nd place honors at the 2014 All Indian Inter-Tribal Ceremonial.
