The Bessie Barber Navajo Coaster Rug
- Set of Four Coasters
Weaving of blankets and rugs by the Navajo
people has a long history dating back over three centuries with weavers
innovating with ever-changing designs. The new Burnham Style was developed
by the Barber and Begay families of Burnham, New Mexico in the 1980s.
Weavers use primarily the natural browns, whites, greys and blacks of
sheep's wool, but with the distinctive inclusion of small areas of vibrant
color. Unique pictorial designs depicting Navajo ceremonial figures are
carefully interspersed among the more traditional geometric designs. This
new, trademark family style is a testament to the continuously creative
nature of Navajo weaving. Weaver: Bessie Barber Credit: The Gloria F. Ross
