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.
The Storm Pattern is a favorite among many collectors. This style of rug is filled with an amazing design that starts at the center and reaches out to the four corners of the weaving. You will also find the weaving filled with lots of other symbols. Storm rugs come in many different colors, and some of the most popular are done in those classic combinations like the Ganado Red. These are very impressive weavings and it is not uncommon to find one of these in the 10 feet range.
