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. Drive 15 minutes south of Ganado and you will end up in the very small community of Klagetoh. No wonder the rug looks so similar to the Ganado Red and many times called just that. The difference is the background color. The Klagetoh uses a gray background color opposed to the red of the Ganado weaving. You will find the same classic diamond design as the focus of the more natural colored weaving.
