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.Storytelling is part of the Navajo culture. No history text had been written until the Europeans showed up, everything was passed down orally and through art. You will find storytelling in silver , basket weaving and other forms of art. That also holds true for rug weavings, where pictures and symbols tell the contemporary and traditional past of the Navajo people. Enjoy looking through our collection of pictorial rugs, some fascinating creations.
