2 Featured Navajo Rugs.
Long hot summer in California
Although none of them are closer than 50 miles from Hanford, the recent lightning caused fires throughout California literally surround us. It’s been extremely smoky and the sky is yellow except at sunset when it is deep red like the landscape of the Navajo Nation. Coupled with 100+ temperatures, it’s tough for firefighters and residents. We will get through this. And the pandemic. And the weakened economy. And whatever else comes our way.
Sandpainting Rug Update
The sandpainting rug we recently featured in Native American Arts magazine has been sold. If you had your eye on it, take a look at three other Sandpainting rugs we offer. These rare patterns can add variety to your collection of Navajo weaving styles.
