Chimayoweavers/Centinela Traditional Arts Since 1982

Feathered - 40x46 Chimayo blanket, handwoven wool

The piece both has feather shapes and utilizes a tapestry technique called hachure that resembles feathers to introduce shading into the piece. This piece has rainbow stripes as a background color and kelly green, red, gold, mint, turquoise, light blue, cerise, peach, rust, orange, and teal included in its design. It uses mixed dyes, which means that at least some of these yarns are from natural dyes, and some of these yarns were hand dyed or commercially dyed. It was woven by Irvin Trujillo who is a seventh-generation weaver, 2007 NEA National Heritage Fellow, and recurring Spanish Market top award winner. It measures approximately 40 by 46 inches.
