Navajo Handwoven Chief's Blanket CA 1920
Navajo third phase chief's blanket woven with hand-spun churro wool in natural white and black, and aniline dyed red. The chief's blanket is so-named because these Navajo woven blankets; warm, soft, naturally water-resistant, artistically beautiful , and skillfully woven, were greatly valued by the Native Americans of the Plains as well as the Southwest. These blankets were costly to obtain and were usually worn by chiefs or important headmen. This blanket has a classic design of black and white stripes with wide bands of red with patterned diamonds; a full diamond in the center, half diamonds at the edges, and quarter diamonds in the corners. The effect of this design was meant to be appreciated while worn. CA 1890. One of a kind. The blanket measures 6' by 5'5".
