Traditional and modern styles of blankets, clothing, and rugs are identified and explained in detail throughout this book with brief accounts of some of the old trading posts that sold them. This new edition of the classic book includes up-to-date advances in the materials and a trend that increasingly includes men as weavers. The evolving weaving styles are explained, including a caution for identifying foreign copies. New marketing ideas are also discussed.
Today, Navajo weaving remains an important domestic craft that is intimately linked with what it means to be a traditional Navajo woman. All weavers, collectors, dealers, and historians will welcome this new edition.
