Can rare and one-of-a-kind be used together effectively?  Every Navajo Rug Weaving is a one-of-a-kind.  No two are alike.  BUT this piece is both one-of-a-kind and rare.  Woven entirely using the twill technique, this is an extremely rare masterpiece!

The skilled artisan used hand-carded, hand-spun, hand-dyed Merino wool, and used vegetal dye to obtain some of the coloring. This piece has been featured in our Navajo Textiles as Modern Art exhibit and what a gorgeous piece of art it is.  

It's hard to believe that this woven art was brought to life on loom outside where the artist sat daily and played it's music to paint this incredible joyfully colored piece.  It just sings to your soul, doesn't it?  Can you imagine wearing this?  The positive energy exuded by this serape would nearly carry you along in your day!

A unique blend of history, Native American culture and storytelling make these weavings an art like no other.

To be showcased on your walls or grace your floors, this functional heirloom is one-of-a-kind piece of history that took 100's of hours to create and will last many lifetimes. We'd love to tell you more about it!
