Your purchase of authentic rugs, jewelry, and craft greatly helps artisans living on the Navajo reservation. Weavers set their own prices and receive 100% of their asking price. Because every rug and piece of jewelry is one of a kind, the first person to complete payment for an item will receive the rug or jewelry. Thank you for your support.All rug sizes are listed in inches.

MORE ABOUT THE AUTHENTIC HAND-CRAFTED ITEMS FOUND HERE ON OUR SITERUGS IN TRADITIONAL, EARTH, AND NATURAL COLORS
Rugs in these categories are grouped by their colors. For instance, the Traditional Colors group contains rugs with mixes of reds, grays, black, and white.
PICTORIAL & CEREMONIAL RUGS
This category contains rugs which either have pictorial elements or are based on ceremonial themes. Other elements you will find in the rugs tell the stories of many of the weavers' clans. The Eagle, Hummingbird and Butterfly Clans are all represented. Other clan animals such as Bear, Elk and Deer are also common. The weavers also like to use symbols of the mountains, clouds, corn and flowers to reflect the beauty of their land and its teachings.
HAND SPUN & HAND DYED RUGS
These rugs have been woven from hand spun and hand dyed wool. The work of preparing the wool for these rugs has often been done by the weaver herself, adding many hours to the time it takes to finish a rug. In these rugs, the wool and design are often coarser than in those rugs made from commercial yarn. The heart and hand of the weaver can also be more evident in these rugs.
TRADITIONAL NAVAJO BASKETS
Ts'aa' (the Navajo word for basket) refers to the familiar design we have come to know as the Navajo wedding basket. Ts'aa' are used extensively in Navajo religious ceremonies. The center spot in a ts'aa' represents the beginning of this world as Diné (the Navajo people) emerged from the fourth world. The center is the beginning of life, moving outwards. Then the rain comes. These are black clouds. The red lines are in the sky and clouds. The outer white part is the increase of the People. The pathway is to let the People emerge: a way out.
All jewelry is handmade by traditional Navajo silversmiths and beaders living on the Reservation. Every piece of jewelry is a one of a kind piece of art.
NATIVE MADE ART
Contemporary Native art has been donated by younger artists in order to help support their Elders. All funds raised through the sale of these items will be used to provide food certificates to Elders in need.
All rug prices are set by the weaver. Since the Elder is not physically present to sell their rug, you may see a few rugs with two prices listed. The "asking price" is the price the Elder would like to receive for the rug. The "low price" is the lowest price the Elder will accept for their rug. You may pay either price or anything in the range between the asking price and the low price.
