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. Ganado Red might be the most famous of all Navajo weavings. Lorenzo Hubbell's life work was to promote Native American art. He would employ many different artists and the Ganado Red would become his weavers signature look. It is known for its striking red color that showcases a center diamond pattern. We have a large collection of Ganado Reds so make sure you look them all.
