This rug was inspired by a collectible rug we had from the 1930's bought on the Navajo reservation. These rugs are handwoven using a 100% wool weft and a 100% cotton warp. The weft is everything you see and feel on the rug except the fringe. The warp is the skeleton of the rug. We use cotton on the warp to guard against possible moth damage. Many of our rugs are designed in our locations in New Mexico and Arizona, with the actual weaving being done in skilled adult weaver's homes in India
The story behind Two Grey Hills begins in the Chuska Mountains of New Mexico, a very remote and distant part of the Navajo Reservation. Design patterns usually present in a Two Grey Hills weavings include a border, four matching corner elements and a large central full diamond.
