This is a very finely woven regional design rug. The pattern is called a split diamond. There are two crosses on either side of the middle of the rug.
Regional rugs are those whose style can be attributed to specific Navajo chapters or areas within the Navajo region. Familiar Chapter or area names might include Two Grey Hills, Chinle, Ganado, and Teec Nos Pos. Non-regional, or general rugs, make up the largest category of Navajo rugs. The non-regional rugs do not exhibit unique characteristics that allow them to be pinpointed to a specific Chapter or trading post area. Many master weavers like to mix styles and experiment with dyes, color compositions and designs, adding their unique touch to rugs that may not be in the style of the area in which they live.
