This book begins with the earliest documentation of Navajo weavings made of cotton and later, when sheep were brought by Spanish invaders, were made of wool. It is an historical account of weaving and its changing traditions. Navajo weavings have long been sought after, originally through trade with other tribes who aquired wearing blankets as symbols of status and wealth. Later as a tourist market began, traders began marketing and developing patterns with weavers. Today, people across the world seek the weavings for their collections and enjoyment. This book, filled with over 200 color plates and illustrations, gives a glimpse into the history of Navajo weavings, their changing styles and the techniques used to creat these beautiful works of art.
