A geometric design with a deep red: Keep an eye out for the deep, rich, red-dyed wool of a Ganado Red rug. The red dye is what many Navajo-weaving lovers associate with the craft, and it dates back to some of the earliest blankets of this style.

Although Ganado Reds are typically thought of as bearing a central geometric pattern, the designs that use Ganado Red can vary greatly.
