Not only are southwestern rugs admired for their great beauty, but the skill and hard work needed in making Native rugs and runners is also greatly appreciated in the same way as mission rugs or craftsman style rugs.
The makers of hand woven wool rugs are highly skilled and begin the rug making process by kneeling in front of a vertical wooden-framed loom. The designs are then put into place by using a shuttle to weave different colored yarn together, making large-scale geometric characters and designs. In the beginning, Navajo rugs as well as those of some other Southwest Indian tribes were made of hand-spun cotton thread. However, once the wool of domestic sheep was introduced to the region by the Spanish settlers, the people primarily used wool to make their colorful rugs and other traditional weaving.
Today, many of the modern southwestern rugs are made in areas where Spanish and Native American histories come together to create colorful designs. Southwest rugs, with their warm earth tone colors and traditional southwestern designs make them excellent for rustic home decorating. You will find everything from Zapotec rugs with no two alike, to southwest table runners and western tapestries. Designers love hand woven rugs because of the rich colors and textures. You too will enjoy the warmth and color created by decorating with southwestern rugs.
