Description

78752 Antique Transitional Navajo Rug, 02'01 x 03'05.

Transitional Navajo rugs, woven during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, mark a period of cultural change for the Navajo people influenced by increased contact with Euro-American settlers and traders. These rugs blend traditional Navajo design elements with new motifs, incorporating a broader color palette thanks to commercially produced aniline dyes. They often feature commercially spun yarns obtained through trading posts, allowing for increased complexity and experimentation in weaving techniques. Influenced by traders, transitional rugs exhibit intricate patterns, varied shapes, and a higher level of weaving skill compared to earlier Navajo weavings, reflecting the adaptability and creativity of Navajo weavers amidst shifting cultural and economic landscapes. Today, they are prized for their historical significance and artistic merit.
