The deep, rich, red-dyed wool of a Ganado Red is what many
lovers of Navajo weaving associate with the craft. The red dye
dates back to some of the earliest blankets and remains a dominant
color in many of today's rugs. The weavers usually have to trade
for the aniline dye source as it can rarely be duplicated using
natural sources. Although Ganado Reds are typically thought of
as bearing a central geometric pattern, the designs that use
Ganado Red can vary from Blanket Revivals, to Storm Patterns,
to early Crystal designs and more.
A color key is included. The pattern is shown enlarged to
make it easier to read. Because of the size of this pattern I
divided it into 2 sections. You will see a colored star to indicate
the bottom of each section.
