Woven to Wear featured key textiles from The Durango Collection®. Representing 800 years of weaving in the Southwest, The Durango Collection ® forms the cornerstone of the collections at the Center of Southwest Studies, chronicling the remarkable achievement of Puebloan, Navajo and Hispanic weavers. This exhibition highlighted Navajo and Puebloan wearing blankets and clothing, paying homage to the creativity and skill of these weavers. Navajo textile design reflects the Diné concept of harmony, while Puebloan textile design expresses identity.
