Red Mesa Navajo Weaving : Historic : GHT 2198

In the late 1800s the move from weaving blankets to be worn transitioned into weaving rugs for floors. The introduction of a new and exciting palette of commercial dyes and pre-dyed yarn set up an opportunity for new expressions in weaving.

The Red Mesa style of weaving unfolded and is characterized typically by a central repeating design, and then radiating from it in both directions is a pattern of serrated diamonds - usually created by using a light color paired with a darker color. The finished product is dramatic and shows the weaver's incredible talent while transitioning from color to color.

This handsome piece was created 1900-1910s and was made using Merino wool in the traditional sacred colors of black, red, yellow, turquoise, it also features gray, caramel, and white.
