Do you like surprises of the good kind?  If so, that's exactly what this weaving is.  It sure doesn't look like much in the overall photo, does it?  BUT when you look at the detailed photos, you see the great surprise!  This is a magnificent piece of art! 

Look at the Diamond twill pattern of weaving.  This style of weaving was passed to the Navajo via the manta designs of the Pueblo Indians.  The work in this piece is just stunning and could only have been accomplished by the finest of artisans. And the quality is appreciated even more when you consider it was woven in the 1880s on an outdoors loom. 

Woven as a double saddle blanket using Germantown 4-ply yarn, this piece would have been folded in half and lain on the horses back under the saddle, or it would have been placed on the saddle to provide added comfort to the rider.

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!
