Handcrafted by Navajo artisans in northeastern Arizona's Ganado region, Ganado Navajo rugs are woven using locally obtained wool from Navajo-Churro sheep. They boast striking geometric patterns and vivid colors, particularly red, obtained from cochineal dye. These designs often incorporate intricate diamond shapes and stepped motifs, skillfully woven using the Navajo or tapestry technique on vertical looms. Available in various sizes, from small accents to large room coverings, these rugs are revered for their cultural significance, durability, and artistic excellence, making them highly sought after by collectors and admirers.
