It was Spider Woman who preserved the Dine (Navajo) people from the evils that surrounded them when they emerged into the Third-World. For this reason she became one of their most cherished Gods. It was also Spider Women who taught the Dine to weave. Spider Women told the Dine ancestors of the first weaving loom constructed by her husband. He made the cross poles of sky and earth cords; the warp sticks of sun rays, lengthwise to cross the woof; the healds of rock crystal and sheet lightning, to maintain the condition of the fibers. For the batten he choose a sun halo to seal the joints, and a comb of white shell to clean the strands.

Another beautiful weaving, by the great Navajo weaver, Mary Tisi. It is a Storm Pattern measuring 19X26. Take a look at the pictures and this rug will sell itself. She used a good combination of natural colors that make this weaving very pleasing to the eye. Mary comes from the Cedar Ridge area of the Navajo Nation and has a great reputation as a fine weaver. Mary Tisi is one of the most accomplished weavers in our area, she raised 4 daughters and taught them all to weave. Weavings from the Tisi family are among the most sought after weavings in our area. Mary is one of the few old-time traditional Navajo weavers still producing a limited number of rugs. When it comes to great Navajo weavers, there are only a few as accomplished as MARY TISI, she is truly in a class by herself. We are proud to offer this excellent weaving from MARY TISI.
