Navajo 2 in 1 Sampler Rug
Navajo handwoven Tree of Life and Klagetoh sampler rug by Bruce Nez. This rug is designed with a central Tree of Life design located in a stepped diamond pattern bordered by a Klagetoh design. Tree of Life rugs generally contain either a corn stalk or a juniper tree located in the center of a traditional wedding basket. There are varying colors of birds and flowers also woven into this rug. The Klagetoh weaving is very similar to the Ganado rugs, but with a predominantly gray background instead of the Ganado’s red. Some experts do not consider Klagetoh a specific regional rug but a sub-type of Ganado. This particular rug is woven with commercially dyed wool which the weaver has re-washed and re-spun.
