Weaving Styles

Traditional Weaving Styles

First settled in 1598, Northern New Mexico has a long history. Although it has spent much of its history in relative isolation, trade and political changes have wrought major changes in culture and, by extension, weaving production. These styles all have beginnings in different periods, representing their time in history.
