Authentic Navajo Rugs for Sale
The Navajo people are perhaps the best-known textile artisans in American history. Their colorful, intricately patterned works are what many today equate with what’s known as Southwest rugs. It’s hard to believe that the expert artisans began weaving just 500-700 years ago; but since the mid to late 1800s Navajo woven blankets have become highly prized. During that time Navajo rugs began to be crafted by mostly female artisans. Today, traditional Navajo rug designs feature bold geometric patterns in a variety of earthy colors, from vibrant reds to subdued browns.
Hand-woven rugs are still an important part of the Navajo people’s economy today. Authentic Navajo rugs offer superior quality and craftsmanship over the flood of imitations that have entered the market. The Navajo rugs for sale at Turquoise de Luchia are exemplary pieces that are crafted using the finest wool and created by hand using traditional weaving techniques.
