A Southwest-inspired wool blanket based on a weaving by Roselyn Begay. The warm, serene hues of this American-made blanket were inspired by the high desert landscape of Roselyn’s home. This blanket is first in our collectible Weavers Series, which features works created in partnership with artists.
About the artist: Roselyn Begay is a renowned Navajo/Dine weaver who lives near Chinle, Arizona. Roselyn has been weaving for more than fifty years; some of her earliest memories are of watching her mother at her loom. Her work is available at trading posts and markets in Sedona, Teec Nos Pos, and Ganado.
This beautiful blanket is designed by celebrated weaver Mary Henderson, known for her intricate, complex creations based on traditional Navajo patterns. Embracing the timeless beauty of black, white and grey, this USA-made blanket looks stunning on a bed, sofa or hanging on a wall. This blanket is the second in our collectible Weavers Series, celebrating the artistry of contemporary weavers by interpreting their one-of-a-kind works into blanket designs.
About the artist: Mary Henderson is a Navajo weaver from Sanostee, New Mexico. She is proud to carry on the traditions of her grandmother and mother, who taught Mary to weave when she was 12 years old. Mary has spent more than 40 years weaving, teaching and inspiring others. Her original weavings can be found at the Toadlena Trading Post in New Mexico.
