Chinle Navajo Rugs

Chinle Navajo RugsThe Chinle rug style appeared during the Revival Period 1920-1940, and is distinctively reminiscent of the old borderless Navajo blankets. The Chinle weaver combines subtle vegetal dyes with a few chemical dyes, and some darker color in the patterns. Chinle rugs are banded, and usually woven in browns and golds, along with natural wools in whites and grays. The traditional Chinle style is a simplified version of stripes and bands enhanced with a serrated diamond motif.
