Navajo Storm Pattern Rug

Here is a photo journey of a Navajo Rug that John purchased and I repaired for him a while back. I am finally getting these posted to my blog!

Storm Pattern with distinctive backwards

Churro is the traditional wool used in authentic Navajo woven rugs. Thus, I chose Churro as my fiber for the repair. This, along with quality repair technique, is vital for retaining the rug’s value.

Notice the Storm Pattern with distinctive backwards “E” in center.¬†We still have not tracked down the meaning of the distinctive backwards “E” in center. This is an unusual feature for Navajo rugs of this style. Anybody have any ideas?

This rug is now a wall hanging in his new “museum”. Next time I visit him, I will take pictures so you can see the rug in its new home.
