 Navajo Rug Ganado Red #2 Loom

The deep, rich, red-dyed wool of a Ganado Red is what many lovers of Navajo weaving associate with the craft. The red dye dates back to some of the earliest blankets and remains a dominant color in many of today's rugs. The weavers usually have to trade for the aniline dye source as it can rarely be duplicated using natural sources. Although Ganado Reds are typically thought of as bearing a central geometric pattern, the designs that use Ganado Red can vary from Blanket Revivals, to Storm Patterns, to early Crystal designs and more.

A color key is included. The pattern is shown enlarged to make it easier to read. Because of the size of this pattern I divided it into 2 sections. You will see a colored star to indicate the bottom of each section.
