NATIVE AMERICAN TEXTILES
Native American Indian Textiles such as rugs, sashes and blankets woven of wool and cotton are highly collectible today for their functional use as well as their intricate beauty. Navajo rugs are perhaps the best known of these textiles. In prehistoric times textiles such as belts and leggings were woven of human hair. Among the Navajos, weaving is a traditional woman's art. Among the Hopi, the weavers are the men. Most of the clothing of the early Indians in the Southwest were either cotton or woolen manta dresses or animal skins. These beautiful textiles are still used today with prized pieces used for wedding ceremonies and burial.
