New Phase Top

Regular price $275.00

A cut and sew skirt and top adapted from our Eighth Generation Gold Label series New Phase wool throw blanket design. With New Phase the tradition of Navajo chief blankets is continued while adding new layers of meaning. New Phase is a tribute to people beginning or finishing a new phase of life.

In the first phase of the design, elements of traditional Navajo rug weaving including horizontal lines and blocks of customary colors in black, red, and off-white, are incorporated. From there, we added patterns in the center to be reflected in the four corners, as well as a cross pattern: these signify the four directions and the four sacred mountains in the Diné culture. 

The side-step patterns in the design tell a story similar to that of a Navajo wedding basket: these steps often symbolize mountains, or the ups and downs of life, and how both of those create a journey. Our signature diagonal OXDX Pattern adds a non-traditional contrasting detail.
