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.Bright dyed wool came from German Town, PA to our area for the purpose of using it in weavings. Today those old German Town rugs can be worth lots of money, but the wool never caught on and many felt it just took away the Navajo look from a rug. Has that vibrant dye with a popular Chief Blanket inspired design.
