Attention Area Rug Lovers – Get Up, Get Out and Get Going Before It’s Too Late to See The Gorgeous Two Grey Hills Navajo Rugs Now On Display in Sedona AZ
What are you doing this weekend? At Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug in Prescott we’re always on the lookout for events we can share with you that showcase area rugs. And I think I have found a great one.
How about taking a fun little trip to Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village (pronounced T-lockey-pockey) in Sedona? During the entire month of September you will be able to enjoy viewing beautiful Two Grey Hills Navajo rugs as Tlaquepaque showcases them now through the end of the month.
Just a little history to wet your whistle, a gentleman named Ed Davies was one of the original owners of Two Grey Hills Trading Post in Tohatchi, New Mexico way back in 1909. He became a major inspiration to the Navajo weavers encouraging the weavers to use hand spun natural wools and extraordinary workmanship. Having fined tuned their skills by the mid 1920’s the weavers earned a high respect for their rug creations which were given the distinct name as Two Grey Hills rugs.
Also on display at Tlaquepaque are antique Serapi rugs! For hundreds of years, the weavers in villages and small towns of northwestern Iran have created some of the most cherished rugs in the world. Persian rugs of the 16th and 17th centuries are considered the height of rug weaving art, and we are fortunate enough to be able to enjoy these beautiful works of art as well, right here in Arizona.
