Ruby Coggeshell and her mother Bessie are masters of the complex form of weaving known as Red Mesa Outline, a variation of the classic Teec Nos Pos style of tapestries. In this fine weaving, Ruby combines dynamic and sharp design elements with soft tones. As usual, Ruby has found something new in an old form of textile art.


About the artist:

Navajo Rug Weaver Ruby Coggeshell

When Ruby Coggeshell was a small child she would sit and watch with fascination as her mother wove intricate and colorful Red Mesa Style rugs. She also watched her two aunts and their daughters. As she watched their strong hands working the wool she would ask questions. "I've always liked to listen to the stories," she says, "About when they were young, what it was like. I always asked questions. They usually would tell me."
