Product Information

CIRCA 1890
Navajo third phase chief's blanket woven hand spun Churro wool in natural white and black, aniline dyed red, indigo dyed blue, and indigo and rabbit brush dyed green. 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 pleasing design background of black and white stripes with bands of red, black, and indigo at the top and bottom and through the center. Over this background are 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. The blanket measures 72 inches wide by 50 inches long.
