1930s Red Mesa Navajo Rug Native American Indian Blanket Navaho Textile Weaving For Sale
Offered here is a circa 1930s very nice Navaho weaving that measures 5
feet 1 inch long by 3 foot 5
inches wide or 61” x 41”. It is
attributed to the Red Mesa weaving area and is in very good + condition. It was hand-woven by an expert weaver on a
primitive upright loom of all Native hand shorn, hand carded and smoothly
handspun long staple Churro and quality Merino sheep wool, both weft &
warp. This old Navajo weaving has a bold
design of diamonds formed by big zigzag waves.

We obtained this vintage Native American textile on
a rug hunt here in New Mexico
just to offer you here on . It has a
smooth, even weft count averaging 26 per inch and a warp count of 7 per
inch. The selvage cords are in excellent
original condition. Warp selvages are 2-spiral
cords and weft selvages are 2-spiral cords.
The corners are all four tight, original and in excellent condition. The
tassels are all excellent with 2 being original, 1 half restored and 1 fully
restored. It is fairly clean & comes
from a non-smoking home. There are
several old internal spots or stains that show up more if held to a light. Several of them still show some on the
surface mostly on one side, one spot or stain is a darker along one edge (1”
approx.) A professional cleaning could possibly remedy these spots. There is one small 3/8’ snag on the red
outlining of a white diamond. Both sides
are even in pattern color and shown in photos above. Colors are excellent in this piece of old
American Indian art and they are: hand
carded & blended natural medium brown, variegated dark chocolate brown
