Ganado Area Weavings

This is one of the most famous weaving areas. Trader Juan Lorenzo Hubbell purchased a Ganado area trading post in 1878 and re-named it the “Hubbell Trading Post.”  Hubbell, at one time, owned over a dozen posts including Klagatoh, 12 miles south of Ganado.  He was among the first of the traders to realize the commercial value of weaving and paid his weavers for quality work. He was particularly fond of Red, grey, black and white weavings and hence the name, “Ganado Red.”  The trading post still operates as a National Historic Monument and you can tour the original Hubbell home.
