Beautiful white Chimayo blanket in very good vintage condition.
Slight bleeding of red. Ca 1940.
As the last creative expression of the 19th century Rio Grande blanket, the Chimayo represents a coming together of tradition and tourism, reflecting over three hundred years of village traditions that began in 1540.
Designs are a melding of The Stripes of the Rio Grande and the Center element (the Ojo) of the Mexican Serape.
