Large Ganado Rug with Double Diamond
The Ganado Red style of weaving was established before 1900 by Don Lorenzo Hubbell, a famous trader in the region. The original designs incorporated traditional Navajo design elements with the more recognizable Asian design elements of the time. The combination was a financial success in the Eastern United States for Hubbell. The Ganado rug remains the most recognizable design of Navajo rugs.
Two large concentric diamonds on a dark red background with bisected serrates forming large triangles at each end containing crosses. Inner end boarders having dissected "S" shaped geometric devices and plain two-stripe outer end boarder. Revival rug patterned after "Germantown Eye Dazzler" Blankets.
