Other Fine Southwest Collectibles: Chimayo Weavings


+Add category to My Preferences

 

The Spanish settlers who came to Northern New Mexico in the Seventeenth Century brought a distinct weaving tradition with them. For hundreds of years they used the wool of the Churro sheep and wooden floor looms to create blankets to keep them warm during the cold New Mexico winters. The designs on these blankets were creative masterpieces of design and color. This tradition continues today. Within the small Northern New Mexico village of Chimayo, families continue to weave beautiful textiles.
