Chimayoweavers/Centinela Traditional Arts Since 1982


This is a traditional boat shuttle design used by Rio Grande weavers for generations. The sticks are Apache Plume, which is a plant local to the area. The wood is known for being flexible for long periods of time. Originally, these shuttles were hand-carved by weavers in the area, and this design is no different; this shuttle is one specifically designed by Jake O. Trujillo, 3D printed so they can be enjoyed and used by many.
