Navajo Indian Rugs
The Navajo learned the art of rug weaving from the Pueblo Indians over 300 years ago. Since then, these weaving techniques have been passed through the generations, becoming an important part of the Navajo culture and lifestyle. While some contemporary designs are produced, most of our Native American rugs for sale use traditional images, patterns and colors.
Various Rug Styles
We have a modest inventory of Native American rugs for sale available in four traditional styles:
- Navajo pictorial weaving incorporates beautiful images, such as animals, into the design. Though traditional weavers do not portray Navajo deities, you may see symbols of the Yei in contemporary rugs.
- Storm weaving displays the traditional “four arm” pattern that symbolizes the borders of the Navajo reservation.
- The Ganado Red area rug features terraced diamonds against a deep red background.
- The brown, white and grey colors of the Two Grey Hills rugs display dual terraced diamonds in the center with cornered triangles enclosed by a detailed border pattern.
We guarantee that each rug is an authentic Navajo creation, purchased directly from the artist. Palms has a deep respect for our relationship with the Navajo Nation and we are proud to help share and preserve their customs and culture for the world to enjoy.
