Description

78749 Antique Ganado Navajo Rug,  01'03 x 02'10.

Ganado Navajo rugs are handwoven textiles originating from the Ganado region in northeastern Arizona, crafted by Navajo artisans primarily using locally sourced wool from Navajo-Churro sheep. These rugs are characterized by bold geometric patterns and vibrant colors, with red being a prominent hue achieved through cochineal dye. Designs often feature intricate diamond shapes and stepped motifs, woven using the Navajo or tapestry weaving technique on vertical looms. Ranging in size from small accent pieces to room-sized rugs, Ganado Navajo rugs hold cultural significance and are prized for their durability, craftsmanship, and artistic beauty, appealing to collectors and enthusiasts alike.
