Navajo Handwoven Ganado Rug
Navajo Handwoven Ganado rug by an unknown weaver. Ganado area rugs are known for their striking "Ganado red" color usually contrasted with natural black, white, and grey elements. Designs are traditionally a single or double central diamond representing the weaver's home and the four sacred mountains portrayed in a triangular geometric in each of the four corners. This particular rug is woven with commercially bought wool which has been re-washed and re-spun to the weaver's preference. This particular rug is woven with an elongated single diamond design with stepped patterns.
