Before the trains started coming to this part of the world and businesses like the Fred Harvey Company started selling Navajo jewelry to the masses, most people back east didn't know anything of the Navajo. Traders like JB Moore would be one of the first to introduce the art of the Navajo to collectors back east, rugs not silver. He put together a catalog of different weavings that would be sold in large quantities. More Traders would begin to introduce Navajo weavings and even influence certain styles. Today this tradition is carried on by the Trading Posts. We have a large collection of weavings from classic Ganado Reds to Germantown Revivals. Also, old antiques that have the character that goes with age to the new contemporary weavings. Enjoy looking through our online collection, and remember if you don't see what you are looking for we have many more in the Post.

Today, a Ganado rug is the one style that many people associate with Navajo weaving. It is typically a large, well woven rug with a deep red background and black border. The central design motifs are the same that Hubbell admired: crosses, terraced diamonds and crosses within diamonds. Smaller terraced forms are often placed in each corner. The borders may be solid black lines or more complex patterns in a mix of black, gray and white. As in Hubbell's day, the two most prevalent colors in a Ganado rug, other than black and red, are gray and white.
