The edges of the central shapes are embellished with geometric flourishes framed in a black and red border. Ganado, Arizona, along with its weavers, were first discovered in 1878 by trader John Hubbel. From the tiny town located in the North-Eastern region of the Navajo Nation, Hubbel made it his life’s work to promote and sell Ganado weaving's across the country, with an emphasis on well-heeled East Coast collectors. The split diamond patterning in two halves along with the bright coloration of this piece indicates that the blanket was probably tied to a saddle skirt to the rear of the cattle, which would account for its excellent condition. less
