Additional Details:
This is not an uncommon sight in Arizona and New Mexico, for the Navaho Indians are the principal blanket weavers in the various Indian tribes of the Southwest. the art of blanket weaving, among the Navahos, was probably learned from the Pueblo Indians some three or four hundred years ago, and the Navahos, being a shrewd, business-like people, developed the art until their product became famous throughout the civilized world. Many of their old blankets especially rival the old Persian and Oriental rugs.
