Ganado

Also known as "Ganado Red", because of the trademark red background design on many Ganado rugs, although some Ganado rugs have a gray background. John Lorenzo Hubbell, founder of the Hubbell Trading Post, popularized these rugs during the 1870's. It was Hubbell who introduced the red aniline dyes to Navajo weavers, accounting for the liberal use of red in these rugs. Ganado Navajo rugs are known for bold colors and simple shapes, while the edge and corners often feature crosses, zigzags, serrates and simple geometric shapes. Many collectors also recognize Ganado weavings by their distinctive black, white and gray colors with one or two centrally placed diamonds in the pattern.
