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.
Many Navajo weavings don't fall into a definite style. After a century of first establishing styles many rugs borrow from several different styles. Most of the time what becomes most familiar is the color patterns. Those proven colors like the richness of the Ganado Red or the naturals of the Two Grey Hills. These new weavings are an expression of the artist instead of being defined by pattern. Amazing pictorials fall into this category.
