Navajo Very Large Crystal Trading Post Rug - C3925A
This is a Navajo Very Large Crystal Trading Post Rug, circa 1940s. The basic field of this Navajo textile was woven from all native wool, carded from brown sheep and white sheep, resulting in a beautiful blend of varying brown shades of color. The other carded color is gray, a blend of white and black yarns. It is possible that the black wool has been overdyed with commercial dye to enhance its color, otherwise, there is no dye in the rug.
