With this post I am initiating a series that will feature a variety of rugs in our current catalog. Although the recent rug show resulted in the sale of many rugs, there are many beautiful weavings remaining in our inventory. These sales are an important way we help to support weavers on the reservation. Even if you're not looking for a rug to purchase, I hope you enjoy looking at the amazing artistry and learning a bit about the weavers.
In this first post there are actually two featured rugs, both by Mary Lee of Many Farms:
Mary is not old enough to be an Elder in our program, but her rugs are a welcome addition to the catalog.
7067 for the top rug and 7063 for the lower rug.
See this 2010 post for more information about the rug catalog.
Notes: Every effort has been made to photograph and present the rugs with as accurate rendition of color as possible. It's not possible, however, to be certain that your computer won't show some variance. Where two prices are listed in the catalog, the higher represents what the weaver hopes to receive and the lower, the minimum she will accept. As has always been the case at ANE all the proceeds of every rug sale go entirely to the weaver. Prices are set by the weaver, and since there is no "middleman" they are typically very reasonable.
