The Navajo Storm Pattern rug is a classic design, and few modern weavers are more adept at this style than Gabriel Benally. The center block represents the home, and lightning bolts link the center to the Four Sacred Mountains in the outer corners. The color combination of red, black, grey, and white were inspired by trader J. B. Moore in the early nineteenth century.

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
