Transitional Period Weavings

Transitional Period Weavings

One of the most interesting periods in the history of Navajo weaving began in the 1880’s and went through the first decade of the 1900’s. It is called the Transitional era because it marked the switch between the weaving of wearing blankets by Navajo women to weavings intended for sale.

Navajo Weaving and the American Flag

The Harvey family lives north of Window Rock, Arizona, the Navajo Nation Capital. I don’t know when my Dad met them, but I don’t think I remember a time when he wasn’t buying weavings from Esther Harvey, the mother and head of the family.

A Real Navajo Rug

A Real Navajo Rug

One of my favorite events is when someone walks in the gallery and says something like, “Do you have any real Navajo rugs?”

Looking around at all of the weavings we have in stock, several hundred, I will ask, “What do you mean?”

I mean the ones where they really did all their own work and made their own dyes, you know, before the white man got here,” is the type of answer I’ll sometimes hear.

The Case of the Unknown Weaver

The Case of the Unknown Weaver

We recently picked up a collection of weavings from the 1980’s that were done by some very talented women. Most of them had tags on them so it was easy to identify the weavers. They came from a famous Indian Trading family in Gallup (by agreement I can share that name with the purchaser of the weavings but am not allowed to put it in print).

There is one vegetal dye weaving in the group that was obviously done by a talented weaver. It is unique as the design is a traditional Teec Nos Pos, an area where you seldom see vegetal dye colors.

Mae Jim's Ganado Red Weavings

Mae Jim's Ganado Red Weavings

Many of you saw our Facebook posts, on May 23rd, about the two large Ganado Red weavings that were created by famed weaver, Mae Jim, in the 1980’s.

We took these two amazing weavings down to Ganado High School, where one of Mae Jim's nephews was graduating, and they were used as the backdrop for the graduation exercises.

The weavings are regularly taken out of our vault for their family celebrations and it is a special honor for us to be able to provide them for the family’s use.
