SF Indian Market 6

These beautiful weaving are the work of Navajo weaver Rena Begay from Arizona. I really admire the time and the work that goes into weaving these rugs. I hope you all have a good Friday and fun weekend.

A size that one sometimes can afford compare to the larger ones which are often beyond reach...

Weaving is an art and requires so many skills, all of which I admire since I don't seem to have any of those myself. The colors are spectacular.

I've seen the time consuming weaving done here in Kuantan so yeah, I can appreciate the work that goes on to it.

Weaving is wonderful! I was unable to resist some rugs I found on my travels. :-)

The designs are lovely. Having done some weaving myself, I know it was a LOT of work. :))

Wonderful designs on the tightly woven rugs!

I admire the talent it takes to make these. I have a friend with a full size loom and it is a time consuming process.

These really are priceless. I love that you know who the artist is and not just buying this stuff from a trading post.

I remember Navajo rugs being sold along the highway in northern Arizona years ago. But we never stopped. Darn! They are beautiful.

Weaving is such an art. Begay is a big name in several forms of Native American art here in Arizona.
