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. Rug weaving is very similar to jewelry making. That means if your parents or grandparents worked in the arts there was a good chance you would do the same. That is true for Navajo weaver Erma Frances. Her mother, Mary Clyde wove Wide Ruins style rugs and would eventually teach Erma. Erma began with simple line weaves, and overtime her rugs would become more complex like her mothers. Today she has taught all three daughters, Mrytle, Marlynn and Melvina the art of weaving Wide Ruins' rugs. Look through our online Trading Post to find rugs by all four amazing artists.
