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. It always amazes me how many rug styles come from a relatively small area of the Navajo Nation. You will find Ganado Reds, Klagetoh style and Wide Ruins within miles of each other. Navajo weaver Betty Clyde comes from a family of weavers, Wide Ruins weavers. Her masterpieces are the quintessential Wide Ruins rugs with bands of vegetal dyed designs.
