Further information
Navajo textiles experienced profound changes in the 1870s when traders brought, among other items, commercially made yarns, chemical dyes, manufactured cloth, and Rio Grande blankets. This Navajo blanket-rug draws inspiration from the Saltillo Rio Grande style, with an elaborate pattern of serrated diamonds and zigzags.
