Abigail Smallcanyon began helping her mother when she was three years old. She says by age six she had the hang of it. That was when she sold her first rug to a trading company in Shiprock, New Mexico. Now she is in her early twenties and making beautiful rugs. Her process of naturally dying her wool is what makes her rugs stand apart from commercially dyed pieces. This process is very labor intensive, and Abigail has taken a series of pictures to show that process.
