Chief Blankets derive their name from an old tradition among Southwestern tribes. Because woven blankest were expensive, they were usually owned by those who were of great stature - such as the chief. Nineteenth century photographs often depicted such chiefs with their woolen blankets and serapes draped about them. Today, modern weavers have revived the traditional designs.

Blanket Revivals are contemporary weavings bearing the classic wearing blanket patterns of the 19th Century. While Navajo weaving has evolved a great deal over the past century and a half, these weavings pay tribute to some of the earliest and most enduring patterns of this art form.
