AL Anthony is the model wearing this blanket.

 

This finely woven textile is made from the wool of sheep from New Zealand, which was imported to Mexico where artisans wove the textile.  The wool is soft, not scratchy, as seen in other Mexican textiles, because of the use of the high-quality wool from New Zealand. The textile was woven on a traditional Spanish-style horizontal loom in which textiles are woven on a continuous roll and, when one textile is finished, the warps are cut away from the next textile in line, and the edge of the textile is hemmed.

The pattern of the textile is based on that of a Navajo First Phase Chief Blanket with alternating rich dark brown, cream, and indigo bands.

 

 

Condition: woven in 2014 so it is in new condition

Provenance: this First Phase Chief Style Pattern Mexican Blanket is from the collection of a resident of Santa Fe
