I’ve been weaving/teaching Navajo Textiles for 16 years or more.I learned the art of weaving, spinning,preparing wool and weaving all regional styles of Navajo Textiles at the age of nine years old.I’m considered a MASTER WEAVER in the Navajo society.

Fleecing Navajo Weavers
The popularity of Navajo rug designs has allowed some fair trade businesses to thrive while Navajo weavers suffer. Thousands of Diné (Navajo) weavers face formidable competition as their historic patterns, increasingly reproduced abroad, are imported and sold via sophisticated marketing schemes, including hundreds of websites on the internet.
