CNHA and auctioneers R. B. Burnham & Co. will again be presenting over two hundred quality Navajo rugs  for auction in scenic Moab, Utah. Proceeds benefit Navajo weavers and scientific research on the Colorado Plateau.

When you feel the fine wool between your fingers and admire the intricate design of a hand-woven Navajo rug, you touch an important part of the culture of the Navajo people. The art of weaving has been passed down, from grandmother to mother, from mother to daughter for generations.

Each Navajo rug is a one-of-a-kind work of art. Each artists’ creativity adds her/his own interpretation to the weaving that makes it unique. Innovation is bringing new interpretations of traditional patterns and exciting original designs to the loom. Navajo rugs are collected avidly and prized for their beauty and durability.

Your support helps Navajo weavers market their textiles and support their families. It also helps insure that this art form and the culture it is tied to remain vital.

About the auctioneers

R.B. Burnham & Co., of Sanders, AZ., has been trading with the native people of the Four Corners area for five generations. The Burnhams are known for their encouragement of innovation and quality in Navajo textiles.
