The earliest known Navajo saddle blankets were created in the 1870s. This particular weaving is a double Sunday saddle blanket circa 1940s-50s. It has elements of snowflakes (aka, Valero stars), large, open fields of earth-tone colors, and colorful tassels that would have extended from behind the saddle. This saddle blanket is completely handspun and woven. It looks as good on a wall as it would on a trusted steed. Unfortunately, the artist is unknown.

They said that the people were to use the plant instead of skins for their clothing. So this seed was planted in the earth? More about this legend
