About The Weavers
Teec Nos Pos Trading Post

Navajo Artisans include fine art weavers of rugs. The Teec Nos Pos Trading Post has a long history of supporting these artisans by being a source for purchase of their fine art. Each rug is a unique creation by the weaver. The patterns and images vary widely with the geographical origins of the weaver and their clan (family) heritage.

Navajo Rug weavers have very special spiritual and intellectual qualities. These are often displayed in the patterns and images. Although some rugs have a "life line" woven into one of the corners of the rug. Many believe the "life line" assures the weavers sprit is not locked into the rug. The traditional weavers do not use notes or drawings during the weaving. The very complex patterns and images are "vivid" in their minds.

The Navajo Rugs are pure artistic creations. When sitting at the loom, the weaver is often in a deep meditative state of mind. Life has many challenges and can be complex on the Navajo Nation. There is a very profound and poignant statement, form an unidentified Navajo author, that states;

       "I am a Navajo Weaver and I Survive"

When I was 11 years of age, I learned to weave.


My late Grandma was a weaver. She shared all the details and structure of loom to poles. She worked with me every step by step; through all the weaving technique of carding, dyes, and spinning the wool into yarn, also warp.

 

Whether or not I will continue to practice it, is another matter.

 

We Navajo Women Weavers are Spider Women and proud of it.
