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.Read More

Ruth Teller was one of the finest Two Grey Hills weavers. She lived in a small place not to far from Newcomb on what used to be Highway 666. My dad used to stop and see her and I went with him a couple of times.
She had three daughters that also were amazing weavers. Two of them, Roseann Lee and Barbara Ornelas worked together to create a large Two Grey Hills tapestry that won the Best of Show at the Santa Fe Indian Market in 1987. It was the first Navajo weaving to win the award and it set a record price for contemporary Navajo weaving when it was sold.Read More

Back in 1957, when my father, Jackson Clark Sr., started buying and selling Navajo weaving, he was also in the Pepsi Cola business. When he went to his first wholesale show, the Los Angeles Gift and Jewelry Show, the show manager asked him what his company name was. He told them it was the Jackson David Bottling Company. It was named after him and his partner, Dave McGraw.
The manager of the gift show told him she didn’t think anyone would buy Navajo rugs from a bottling company and suggested that he call it the Jackson David Trading Company. So he did.Read More

Mae was born around 95 years ago. Even she does not know for sure how old she is because no one recorded the date when she was born.
We do know that she has been at it a long time!
Our father started buying rugs from her back in the 1960's and we continue to do that todayRead More
