Zuni Pueblo Sarape-style Blanket, 1870
This unusual early striped Zuni blanket incorporates design elements found in Spanish-American weavings from the Rio Grande Valley in New Mexico. A combination of simple bands with central diamond and terraced stepped designs was woven of handspun natural gray, dyed green, indigo-dyed blue, plied commercial yarns, and red “Bayeta” wool, a woolen flannel that has been raveled and respun. Notes refer to the original weaving from The Durango Collection® (DC-PO-10), Center of Southwest Studies Collection #2000:03007.
