Weavings

Jackson Clark, Sr., the founder of Toh-Atin Gallery, began trading in Navajo rugs in 1957. Toh-Atin is proud to have one of the finest selections in the country of Navajo art and Navajo weavings. Colorado is home to Toh-Atin gallery, thus we have a genuine appreciation for the history and art of our area. We at Toh-Atin believe that the Navajo weavers of today are among the most creative artists in the world. While we value, appreciate, and proudly offer the fine work of weavers who wove the blankets and rugs of a century or more ago, we believe that the best pieces coming off Navajo Indian looms today are every bit their equal.

The Navajo loom is upright. The wool is washed, spun and, in some cases, dyed. The rug can take several months, and sometimes more than a year, to complete. Navajo weaving is constantly changing; in the first part of the 20th Century, white traders influenced the patterns and sizes of Navajo rugs. Patterns and styles of weavings became identified with particular Trading Posts, i.e., Ganado, Teec Nos Pos, Two Grey Hills and Crystal.



However, recent trends in Navajo weaving emphasize the independence of the weaver. Prices have escalated over the years, partially due to increased demand and the fact that fewer Navajo women are taking up this fine art. Navajo Indian life has changed. Even though today's weavers are creating outstanding pieces, there is strong demand for older Indian rugs. Durango and Cortez area customers, it is probably safe to assume that values will continue to increase. However, this should not be used as the sole reason for purchasing a Navajo rug, although the purchase of weavings by well known established artists have proven to be great investment over the years. A Navajo weaving should be purchased for enjoyment now, and in the future.

Please look through our web site selections and give us a call. Our associates are looking forward to answering your questions and finding the perfect weaving for you. Our inventory is constantly changing and not every weaving is featured on our site.



We will be happy to send a weaving to you "on approval." If you decide you do not like it, return it to us for a full refund of the purchase price. We want you to love our hand crafted Indian rugs. Durango area residents and customers from all over Colorado appreciate our dedication to authenticity and customer satisfaction.
