Navajo textiles are amazing and maybe they also feel familiar to me because they have been used in Pendleton textiles forever. I believe these textiles draw us in so much because they have meaning and significance for the Navajo's that introduced these lovely woven textiles so long ago. For the Navajo people that made and continue to make authentic Navajo textiles, weaving is not only a source of livelihood, it is a way to participate in traditional Navajo culture and community. The art of weaving is an expression of beauty, harmony, and balance: concepts that lie at the center of Navajo art and life. These seem like great vibrant energies to bring into to your space and world.
I am glad to see Pendleton wools and Navajo prints making a come back. Wool is a beautiful natural fiber that is oh, so warm for the cold months ahead. And the rich textured Navajo designs are often coupled with vibrant colors to keep our spirits up on these short winter days.
Now where can you get in on the action??
