Navajo Rug/Blanket

red navajo rug/blanket

Blankets woven in a riot of vivid colors with dizzying design combinations created a style of textile now referred to as eyedazzlers. Navajo weavers are justly famous for the excellence of their textiles. Over more than three hundred years of artistic production, designs and materials changed frequently. The eyedazzler style was popular with weavers and their customers from about 1880 to 1900 when brightly colored commercial yarns were widely available through newly established trading posts on the Navajo Reservation.
