Crystal Navajo Rugs

Crystal Navajo RugsCrystal initially emerged as a regional style and center during the Rug Period 1890-1920, but the design radically transformed in the 1940’s. The typical contemporary Crystal is banded not bordered, featuring vegetal-dyed yarns in warm golds, browns, greens, and a touch of black. Occasionally a weaver deviates and employs either very pale or very dark hues. Though a variety of patterns can be found in the bands of color, a common type is a two color, either straight or wavy line configuration.
