Widely considered to be the most intricate and detailed of all Navajo rug designs, Teec Nos Pos patterns offer a truly exceptional and distinct look. Named after a location important to the Navajo, this "Ring of Cottonwood Trees" has produced two distinct styles that have both long been influenced by the tightly woven, brightly colored Persian rugs of the Middle East. Large, bold, and colorful, Teec Nos Pos boasts a weaving unlike any other. This particular piece with its eagle pictorial elements was woven sometime in the 1940s by an unknown Navajo weaver and is truly outstanding.

It was called ni tqin'kae tsosi, fine fiber cotton (Indian hemp). There were two persons who brought the seed of that plant, they were spiders. 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
