Woven to Wear: Navajo and Hopi Textiles from The Durango Collection®

September 17, 2009 - January 22, 2010 at the Avenir Museum of Design & Merchandising

Representing 800 years of weaving in the Southwest, The Durango Collection® forms the cornerstone of the Center of Southwest Studies, chronicling the remarkable achievement of Pueblo and Navajo weavers. This exhibition of a portion of the collection pays homage to the creativity and skill of Navajo and Hopi weavers. Mantas of the Hopi parallel the introduction of cotton to the Southwest. And Navajo textiles reflect the Dine (the Navajo name for "the People") concept of harmony.
