Teec Nos Pos, circle of cottonwoods (trees). Anyone who has visited the Southwest or spent time on the Navajo Reservation knows the value and opportunity found at a circle of cottonwoods. Cottonwoods mean water, shade, food, fuel, the opportunity to sit and rest, encounter a fellow traveler, or to just think, luxuriating in the assured shade.

At first, Teec Nos Pos came to me at my store in 1976, in the form of Bill Foutz. He chewed gum real hard and told me “I had, just had to buy his rugs. They're the best, Androoo.” Wide Ruins* layouts with Teec Nos Pos style panels, Two Grey Hills* colored Teec Nos Pos with Red Mesa* outline and geometric field elements. They were mostly woven of commercial (not handspun wool) yarn. Bill said the Navajo shipped their wool to Boston for cleaning and what came back may not even be the same Navajo wool that the Navajo sent. Such is the color of the reservation.

It is no surprise that the rugs seen in this catalog grew and matured in this particular area of the Navajo Reservation. This oasis, with its opportunity for contemplation, fostered the most complex and communicative of all Navajo 20th century weavings.

- From the Introduction

*Areas of the Navajo Nation - usually named after the closest trading posts in that area.
