Ganado Reds, these rugs always have a red background, because Lorenzo Hubbell said so. Here is one of Kathy's renditions of the classic Ganado Red. This is a design which originated in a much simpler pattern invented by Hubbell for use in his printed catalog of "Indian Blankets." Hubbell owned the trading post in Ganado in the late 1800s. He made up "saleable" designs and had the local Navajos weave them accordingly. The one pattern that has stayed popular is the one you see here by Kathy.
