Rug Of The Week - Greyhills by Lucy Chee

by John Aldrich

This week's featured rug comes from Navajo Mountain. This area might be better known for weaving baskets than rugs, but there are still some fine weavers there. Lucy Chee has woven this simple yet elegant two greyhills design:

The rug measures 24" x 38" and is priced at $500. Here is the catalog listing, 6862.

Navajo Mountain is the newest location for ANE to serve with the first food run occurring there in August of 2008. It has rapidly become one of the most popular with volunteers, however, due to the beautiful location and the warm, appreciative reception we receive from the Elders.

Lucy Chee is one of these Elders who makes us feel at home when we visit Navajo Mountain.

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.
