A beautiful picture, dear Marilyn!

It would be interesting to see the finished products. Probably patterns are very beautiful!

Best wishes. Eva

Thank you, Eva. You can find a sample of the designs here. We have a small one in our home that my parents bought in the 1960s, but they are now very expensive! Of course it is right for the weavers to be paid properly for their labour, but it does keep me from buying a new one!

Best wishes, Marilyn

Thank you, oronbb and msadek rached.

I usually do not like the harsh light of flash, but here there was no choice. And with her dress it worked well!

I am happy the tradition of handicraft is still alive. I hope it is not in the museum or "heritage park"... Your photo has an educational character :)

Thank you, Janina, for visiting. This was taken inside a "hogan" that was conveniently located but was like many we saw at a distance. The weaver is a sister of the Navajo driver who took us into Monument Valley on three separate and wonderful drives. The highly skilled craft is still actively carried on.
