Lena Tahe’s signature Prayer Feather Chief Blanket Variant designs are popular with contemporary Navajo rug connoisseurs. There are a lot of good reasons. The design is instantly recognizable, but Lena never copies herself. Combine the design with Lena’s weaving proficiency and the results are unbeatable.
Each one of Lena’s Prayer Feather Chief Blanket Variant rugs is a unique composition and each feather in them, like every prayer, has its own design and purpose. The rug measures 43 x 29 inches and is one of the larger rugs of this style that she weaves.
Lena says that we offer her the highest prices for her rugs, so she brings them directly here. We hope to keep that up! Lena brings her work in from her home in Hardrock, Arizona, over 100 miles from our store. She uses respun Brown Sheep wool for her rugs and meticulously shaves and grooms the finished rugs before they are sold.
Lena’s weaving style is tight and even and her sides are beautiful. There are 30 unique feathers on the rug and they form a perfect chevron. Others try to copy Lena’s style, but no one else even comes close!
Whenever we have one of Lena’s Prayer Feather rugs, we display it over the long sofa in our “knit pit”. They tend to find homes quickly when someone decides that they will look better in their own surroundings! Please contact us if you have any questions regarding Lena’s rug. We love to talk about our collection.
