Doris Leslie Blau Collection Navajo-Sand Geometric Hand Knotted Wool, Silk Rug N10840 9'0" × 12'0" $13,000
Navajo rugs constitute a phenomenal contribution of Native Americans to the world of textile production, and co-create a broader category of American rugs. This modern rug, made in the Navajo style, fully reflects the geometric elegance and heart-gripping simplicity of this exceptional tribal art.
The main field of the rug carries a simple geometric design of colorful stripes against a sandy beige background. This design is a metaphor for the Native American life – the prevailing neutral shade symbolizes the sun-scorched earth and the colors reflect the tribal people themselves, adorned in bird feathers, creative outfits and bead jewelry. As such, this floor covering is both meaningful and beautiful, it is versatile but interesting, classy yet with a pinch of humor.
On top of mesmerizing appearance, this modern Navajo-inspired rug can boast of impeccable execution. It was carefully hand-made of the finest wool in accordance with traditional techniques by a skilled artisan. If properly maintained, it will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear, bringing in the irrepressible charm of Native American aesthetics.
Doris Leslie Blau carries an exceptional collection of original modern rugs in many styles and materials. Contemporary hand-made rugs are a bridge throughout history, they are the fruit of the constant evolution of the weaving craft that has accompanied men since the dawn of civilization.
