Marie Yazzie, Chief Rug, Navajo Handwoven, 68 in x 30 in

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.Navajo weaver Marie Yazzie made this gorgeous Chief rug. This is a newer style that comes from the New Lands area near Sanders, AZ. It draws from a few different styles, but the raised weave is definitely its own. Like many other patterns this one has evolved over the years and comes in many different colors and patterns.
