Traders like JB Moore would be the first to introduce the art of the Navajo to collectors back east, but it was rugs (not silver) that first captured the imaginations collectors and decorators. Following Moore's suit, other traders would begin to market Navajo weaving, even influencing many of the well-known styles. Today styles are not defined by regions, but perfected by dedicated weavers from all parts of the Navajo Nations. We have put together a large collection of rugs on our online Trading Post and hope you take time to look through them all. Hopefully, you will find the perfect rug. The Chinle is a banded rug much like the Wide Ruins. However, the color patterns are usually different, lots of natural color as opposed to those vibrant vegetal dyes. This type of weaving is perfect to display down long hallways with its neutral colors and rectangle designs. Look through our online collection of weavings, we have many different styles of weavings.
