Description: This is an example of a phase II chief's blanket that was traded by the Navajo to Plains groups. Such wearing blankets are considered the high point of traditional Navajo weaving. All chief's blankets are woven with a greater width than length and are characterized by broad horizontal black and white stripes with three perpendicular bands. Phase II is distinguished by an elaboration of the three thick bands found on the phase I blanket. The design is created with natural(comma) indigo(comma) and cochineal dyed wool to create shades of white(comma) brown(comma) blue and red.
