Moore, Trader at Crystal Trading Post in New Mexico from 1900 to 1911 is now famous for introducing to the weavers new patterns of textiles he felt would be saleable to Easterners for use as rugs.

❤️ For your shopping pleasure, we have a vintage 1930s Bistie style Navajo weaving in gorgeous Red, black, gray, and white and unexpected pink accent flowers. It's in excellent condition! ❤️ Bistie translates to Badlands by the Navajo. This design was recently recognized as its own distinctive style. It's characterized as having a strong central pattern and multiple borders. As with the Teec Nos Pos rugs, there is a recognizable oriental influence.

Easily one of the most well-known styles due to their value to early settlers, Moki weavings began as blankets around Coronado’s expedition in 1540. Originally designed by Spanish weavers and adopted by the Navajo, Zuni, and Hopi. The Moki became as valuable as food, due to their durability and ability to keep you warm on those frigid winter nights.⠀
