Description: This rug is tied to the Hubbell Trading post established in Ganado(comma) Arizona(comma) in 1876 by Lorenzo Hubbell. Hubbell was one of two major traders integral in promoting Navajo weaving in the Euro-American market. Initial designs made at the Post incorporated traditional Navajo weaving designs(comma) while in the early 20th century styles began to incorporate popular Near East motifs. The Hubbell Revival (or Old Ganado) style of rug is characterized by stepped diamonds and embellished triangles. The color of such rugs is typically dominated by red with black(comma) gray(comma) and ivory details. This example was originally thought to be a traditional (pre-trading post) blanket(comma) but was made with Germantown(comma) PA(comma) and handspun indigo yarns in a pattern that is found on one of the Hubbell Trading Post design paintings.
