This is a tapestry weaving of unusually fine workmanship inspired by the Second Phase Chief’s blankets of the early days of Navajo weaving. It features the classic red, blue, white, and black color palate and adds arrow elements and a distinctive railroad track, which were characteristic of this elegant early style. Technically, the weaving is as tight and well-woven as any Navajo textile in our collection.

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
