Chinle Raised Outline Navajo Rug, by Marie Sheppard
Chinle Pattern; Raised Outline Weaving Technique
Marie Sheppard weaves a variety of rug styles, but is best known for her raised outline rugs in dazzling designs. This master weaver uses a combination of undyed, natural wool in creams and subtle grays and will often re-dye commercially dyed spun wool to colors of her choosing, or hand dye wool with her wide array of hand crafted vegetal pigments. Another softly draping weaving that would nicely grace seating, a bench, or a bed.
