Trading Blanket - Weathered Crimson
Every Navajo blanket has its own story... its own meaning. They were created to graphically represent historical events, cultures, and beliefs that were integral to the tribe’s history and way of life. No two were ever the same, and the Navajo believed that they wove their soul into the pieces they created - thus incorporating a loose thread somewhere into their blankets. Invisible to the naked eye, the loose thread would allow their soul to escape.
In tribute to the history and artistry of the Navajo blankets, Carrie has created the "Trading Blanket" Series. The collection weaves together three new pieces - bringing forth the power and energy of the past, and like the storied history of the Navajo blanket, her soul is written into each one.

Poplar hardwood is milled to our exacting standard 1-3/8” width with an eased edge to maintain a smoother painting surface. The bars are custom fabricated for each piece and assembled to create the perfect frame for the canvas.
Carrie uses only top-of-the-line, archival-quality, 15 oz canvas - triple-primed with acid-free titanium gesso to reach a finished weight of 20 oz. More stable and durable than lighter-weight canvases, it supports heavier paint and larger applications with ease and offers an outstanding substrate for almost any medium. Once the poplar frame has been created the premium quality canvas is hand-stretched to ensure a tight wrap and superior smoothness for Carrie’s creations.
