Women's Dress Panel Tapestry Weaving (#131)
"Revival style" refers to a blanket design in which the weaver references older patterns, frequently from the mid 1800's. Variations of the blue, white, red and black Chief blankets are a popular Revival design, but any older design that is recreated could be called "Revival". This small tapestry recreates and remembers the once ubiquitous woolen garment worn by Navajo women.
