It is very common for a nice Navajo weaving to cost into the thousands. Even at the end of the 19th Century when Indian Traders were developing a Navajo rug market the cost of the weavings would be out of reach for many. To give Native American art enthusiasts a hand woven rug they could afford the Gallup Throw was introduced. This rug was different because it had a cotton warp and many times was left unfinished with fringes hanging at one edge. Today the Gallup Throw is still being woven. However, it is now done mostly by older Navajo women, and one day we probably wont see many of these weavings. It is lots of work for a piece of handmade art that doesn't demand a high price tag, and that is why it might not be carried on by the younger generation. We have decided to take this popular weaving and turn it into a backpack. Something that you can use daily, look very stylish and it gives you the opportunity to share a part of Native American culture many people don't even realize exists. The backpacks are handmade, and just like the weavings no two are ever exactly the same.

Returns Policy

With every purchase we allow for a provisional 30 day inspection period. If for any reason you do not want to keep an item that you have purchased, simply return the item in original condition within 30 days of receipt. You will be refunded the purchase price. Return shipping not included.

We are extremely reasonable, but the inspection offer is provisional--exclusively at our option. This is a service that most companies would only offer to established account customers. Each of our pieces is unique and carefully photographed. If we feel that the returned piece is in any way damaged, or different than the piece that we originally sent, we will return the item to you and no refund will be offered or made.

If you are a regular customer, lets just say, we will be much more generous. Thanks for doing business with Perry Null Trading Co!
