Old Navajo Banded Blanket Diyog Weaving

Old Navajo Banded Blanket Diyog Weaving. A banded utility blanket known as Diyog in Navajo circa 1880-90. The simple but elegant horizontal patterns consists of natural white, brown and black wool and dyed orange and red wool, all hand spun. There are lazy lines across the piece evident.

Selvages and tassels remain largely intact. Old inventory tags remains as shown.

The blanket was sewn onto the canvas and has been displayed for as a textile art for many decades, as a result, the exposed side of the blanket is sun-faded as the back retains a much more vivid color. It has been taken off the canvas and will be sent as a blanket without the frame. This blanket is believed to be woven as a utility piece for daily use for versatile function and it displays some minor wears and minute holes in some spots. The alternating bands in contrasting colors render this piece an abstract yet a robust tribal aesthetic.
