Manta : Navajo Weaving : Jalucie Marianito : Churro 463

Jalucie Marianito is a spectacular Master Weaver! Spiderwoman gifted her with the talent of creating phenomenal wearing blankets - from serapes to mantas to chief blankets.  When her hands touch the loom they begin to paint incredible masterpieces. 

This is one of her masterpieces. This woman's manta was featured in the 2006 "The Next Phase : Navajo Weaving in the 21st Century from the Getzwiller Collection Exhibit at the Desert Caballeros Museum in Wickenburg.

Isn't it amazing how displaying things differently completely changes their interpretation? Woven with native Churro wool, Jalucie used all natural dyes to achieve the coloring in this piece.  Indigo blue, cochineal red, and to get green she over-dyed Indigo blue with Rabbit Brush yellow. This piece is from our exclusive Churro collection. 

It's been said by Navajo weavers, "If you like a piece it's not because you like it, it's because IT has chosen you."

Close your eyes. Can you see this piece on a wall in your home or office? If so, you may have been chosen to be this weaving's forever home. Let us help this vision become a reality.
