Navajo Handwoven Ganado Rug
Navajo handwoven Ganado rug by Irenetta Keesie. 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 three central diamonds and commercially dyed wool which has been re-washed and hand spun to the weaver's preference.
