Moki Hubbell Transitional Blanket : Historic : GHT 2016

Moki weavings are very distinctive in the Hubbell Trading Post/Chinle area. Early traders thought that the Hopi made these blankets and called the style "Moqui" which is the Spanish translation for Hopi Indians.  

Easily recognized by its horizontal indigo and brown bands, with distinctive crosses.  Some may have diamond designs within the pattern.  They are usually simply colored in red, white, blue or brown, and, black.  Innovative weavers will use purple and colors other than the traditional, but the style remains as Moki.   

From the Hubbell Trading Post this Moki Transitional blanket is very finely woven.  The beautiful variegation in the stripes attest to the lovely hand-dyed aniline wool.
