Navajo Handwoven Ganado Rug
Navajo handwoven Ganado rug. Ganado area rugs are known for their striking "Ganado red" color usually contrasted with 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 was woven with commercially dyed wool which had been re-washed and re-spun to the weaver's preference. This rug has a single elongated diamond shape in the center with geometric patterns and the border is designed with four leaf clover motifs.
