Late Classic Wearing Blanket : Historic Navajo Textile : PC 95

 Late Classic Serape from the 1870s and in all original condition.  The light red is raveled flannel and the dark red is raveled cochineal dyed bayeta cloth.  Both materials were issued at the time to the Navajos as an annuity trade item.  

These were woven together to create a uniform color.  When initially woven the flannel red would have been darker and it has toned through the years Cochineal and Indigo do not fade over time.   

This Serape, very finely woven and all original is wonderful addition to any collection.
