Carrie Tsosie Navajo Handwoven Chief Rug
R10059;918518-Navajo Handwoven Chief Rug by Carrie Tsosie
Navajo handmade Chief rug woven by Carrie Tsosie, daughter of the well known weaver Anita Tsosie. Chiefs blankets are more distinguished by its square shape which originally started out as a plain design of stripes. The blankets were traded mostly to either the Plains Indians or to the Pueblo's. This finely woven rug has a dark plum colored background and embellished with zig-zags, stepped patterns, lines, diamonds, and stripes. This rug is made with commercially dyed wool that has been re-spun by the weaver. This is a one of a kind item. Measures 62" by 49 1/2".
