 This  cross design is derived from Navajo rug patterns originating from the small community of Ganado in New Mexico. In this area in 1878, John Lorenzo Hubble founded his first trading post. Hubble served as a bridge between the Navajo and Anglo cultures and his influence on weaving and silversmithing endures to this day. He encouraged the native weavers to use native wool and vegetal dyes and helped them to understand which of their designs would be popular in the outside world.  
   The bold designs and glorious reds of Ganado rugs are known and collected throughout the world.
