Germantown Woman's Manta Navajo Weaving : Historic : GHT 1988

Woman's mantas were woven as two panels that were sewn together leaving neck and arm holes.  They usually featured a simple design, often comprised of three rows.

In this case we have a lovely panel made in the 1880s, and woven with germantown yarn.  Germantown yarns were 3-4 ply and of bright bold colors.  This piece is in excellent condition and was woven very tightly - so to repel the weather. The weaver incorporated many "lazy lines" or sectional lines which would provide for comfort and fluid movement.
