|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. |
Early traders provided weavers with the aniline (artificial) red dye, which could rarely be created using natural sources. It remains a dominant color in many of today’s rugs. Although Ganado Reds are typically thought of as bearing a central geometric pattern, the designs that use Ganado Red can vary greatly.
