Navajo Handwoven Ganado Sampler Rug
Navajo handwoven Ganado sampler rug by Bertha Roan. This rug is created with two different square shaped Ganado rugs connected together making it a sampler rug. 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 dyed wool which has been re-spun to the weaver's preference.
