February 2024 Featured Navajo Rugs

This Month’s Featured Navajo Rugs

February 2024

February being a short month, we have a brief list of featured weavings for your enjoyment and consideration. With books like Craig Johnson’s Longmire and  the TV series Yellowstone bringing the Old West and the New West to millions of readers and viewers, the interest in Navajo weaving is growing. Now is an exciting time to add to your collection or décor.

Old West Show & Auction

Thanks to Jeff Voracek of Red Mesa Gallery in Penryn, California, we had an outstanding experience last month at Brian Lebels Old West Events in Las Vegas, Neveda. We met collectors, interior decorators, and lovers of all things Native American and Old West. Many of our weavings left the show with new owners ready to display their pieces in their homes and offices.
