Preservation Series 1, Navajo (Dine) Sarape:
This very early weaving is contemporary with the Ute-style 1st phase Chief Joseph blanket. This unusual early sarape combined the simple striped and terraced stepped design elements in use at the time without incorporating red bayeta yarns. Woven of indigo-dyed blue, indigo with vegetal-dyed green, and natural hand-spun churro wool yarns. The color scheme suggests a Rio Grande Valley influence.
