Native American Navajo Rugs
At Kachina House we carry a small selection of Native American Navajo rugs, handmade by weavers using hand dyed wool.
The Navajo Creation story states that Spider Woman taught the Navajo how to weave. The early Navajo weavings were made for utilitarian purposes, traditional dresses, wearing blankets, and saddle blankets. It was not until the end of the 19th century that artists began to make weavings that were sold.
Navajo weaving is a form of artistic expression. There are many traditional patterns that since the 1920s have been associated with areas of the reservation where the pattern is prevalent and promoted by the Trading Posts in those areas. Some of the identifiable patterns include, Burntwater, Chief’s Blanket, Chinle, Crystal, Ganado, Klagetoh, Teec Nos Pos, Two Grey Hills, Wide Ruins, Yei & Yeibichai, and more.
