Nellie Tso, Saddle Blanket, Navajo Handwoven, 30" x 30"

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.Like the Plains' Indians the Navajo are a horse people. The saddle blanket has been woven by the Navajo for the last 150 years. They come in many different looks and are some of the most collectible . You don't see as many as you once did, but we are proud to show the few we have. A few single and double weavings.
