The Transitional period (1868 - 1890) in Navajo weaving was a time of many changes. The Navajo were permitted to return to their beloved red dessert nestled between the four sacred mountains. Government appointed Traders began setting up posts in the remote areas of the reservation to supply goods, and to personally promote weaving. Items sold at the trading post exposed the Navajo to a great new palette of ideas, designs, and patterns as found on sacks, catalogs, and photos.
We bring you an impressive weaving from the Transitional period. The vibrant red is outstanding, especially when you recognized it was woven in the 1880-1890 period. Beautiful layers of Spiderwoman crosses draw you in to the stunning center. It has a hand sewn patch from the 1940s declaring it is Berlou Moth Proofed - with a 5 year guarantee. And look at the photos... it looks AMAZING as a bed cover!
