Please email us for pricing of our Navajo Angora blankets and Churro rugs. We're happy to provide more photos and a detailed description if requested. We may also have more rugs and blankets for sale that are not shown on the Sales page.


CHURRO NAVAJO RUGS

Our Navajo rugs are woven with 100% Churro Navajo sheep, single ply wool yarn. These pieces are chronologically numbered in sequence with a “Cortez Collection” designation, such as “CC-250” (meaning the 250th rug we’ve had woven). The single ply mill spun weft yarn used to weave our rugs is Navajo Churro sheep wool. Inquire for pricing and detailed information for each rug.

ANGORA BLANKET ON LOAN TO THE AMERICAN TEXTILE HISTORY MUSEUM

We have loaned one of our Angora First Phase chief’s blanket to the American Textile History Museum, Lowell, MA. The museum requested the loan to exhibit this Navajo blanket at their Grand Opening Exhibition, June 2009 through June, 2010. The museum displayed it as a replica faithful to the earliest Navajo chief’s blankets. It remains on continuing loan and display. Our loan of it was extended following the close of the Grand Opening Exhibition. It is displayed in a showcase.

CUSTOM WEAVING: NAVAJO CHURRO RUGS AND ANGORA BLANKETS WOVEN TO CLIENT SPECIFICATIONS


We have received requests from clients over the years for a rug or Angora blanket woven to their specifications, including size, fiber, design, dyes and colors. Some of those custom woven pieces are displayed here. Please inquire about our weaving your custom Navajo rugs and blankets. We have woven many replicas of the light blue indigo Angora blanket shown, designed by the Japanese textile designer Hiroki, for example. These blankets replicate the ancient ethnographic blankets woven by the Japanese Native Peoples – the Ainu, the same concept for weaving our replica Navajo blankets.

 


The 6’ x 8’ Navajo rug on the floor was woven to replicate the Pendleton Co. “Navajo Water blanket” wool trade blanket being held by a Navajo weaver.

This pictorial rug was woven for “BUFFALO BARRY”

This pictorial rug was woven for “ABKA”, the American Bowie Knife Association. Colors were specified by the client. “ABKA” is not easy to read.

This Ute Style First Phase chief’s rug was woven to a specific size and design, in a shape wider than typical for its height, to fit a wall space in a client’s yacht.

This Ute Style First Phase chief’s rug was woven to a client’s specified size and design with a specified thread weight yarn, a yarn which is finer than our routine rug wt. yarn.


This Second Phase chief’s rug was woven to a size and design specified by a client.

This Angora 5’ x 4’ blanket was woven to the specifications of a Japanese textile designer named Hiroki. The colors and dyes of light blue indigo and cochineal red, as well as size, fiber and design, were all specified. We have woven many of these same blankets for Hiroki.
