Navajo weavings

Considering how to display Navajo weavings? There are several reasons to include them in your home. Many artists, such as Navajo weavers, were not trained to be artists. While some have embraced the label of artist, others have balked at the idea, fearing that it would pigeonhole a centuries-old practice. DAM curators have carefully walked this fine line, however, and have included Indigenous pieces alongside their more mainstream offerings.

Historically, the Navajo weavers produced a variety of designs, including the American flag. While they didn’t create the flag as such, their weaving techniques were often modified and adapted to fit a wider market. The first Navajo weavers were given bright-colored wool yarn by settlers from Pennsylvania. This brought new ideas to the Navajo weavers, which sometimes changed the flag’s design to suit the market.

The Navajo women were also noted for the fineness of their weavings, and their use of small-diameter wool. Their rugs were thin, dense, and tightly woven. These days, many Taodlena Trading Post weavers are carrying on this tradition of quality. The finest examples are sometimes referred to as tapestry rugs, and their intricate patterns are often more complex than those of traditional rugs.

There are a few tips you should follow when displaying Navajo rugs. Firstly, they should be displayed away from fluorescent lighting. They should also be displayed away from your kitchen, where grease, smoke, and insects can damage them. You should also avoid putting them near an open window. To prevent fading and other damages, make sure you dry them completely before putting them on display. To make them last for years, you should consider cleaning them regularly with a mild detergent.

You should also keep in mind that a Navajo rug will not have any borders. These rugs are often woven without borders and often feature added designs. These rugs often use natural vegetable dyes and don’t have any borders. You can also look for a museum or gallery that sells Navajo rugs to learn more about the process. If you’re not familiar with these rugs, it’s best to visit one and take notes on it.

Another great way to learn about Navajo rugs is by attending a Navajo rug auction. This auction is sponsored by the Adopt-A-Native-Elder Program, which creates a market for Native elders’ crafts. All proceeds go to the weavers. For more information, check out Woven by the Grandmothers. You can also read the book “How to Display Navajo Rugs in a Museum” published by Aladdin.
