Navajo Inspired Designs

 I found out, while watching a Canadian program two weeks ago, that Navajo prints are again popular for fall 2011.  How could it ever be out of style?  The prints are just beautiful and such a part of the Native American culture.

Canyon de Chelly,

The Navajo nation mainly live in the Southwestern United States where the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah meet.  This area is called the Four Corners.  Navajo textiles were made as blankets to be used for cloaks, dresses, saddle blankets, and other items by this nation.  It was at the end of the 19th century that the Navajo made rugs using their designs to sell to tourists and also to export.  We're still reaping the visual rewards of their art.
