This beautifully illustrated study examines the Rio Grande Hispanic weaving tradition from 1870 to the present. In the past, the story of the weavers of northern New Mexico has often been distorted in popular and scholarly literature by perpetuating romantic lore that has surrounded the craft, and by labeling products for the tourist and curio markets as inauthentic and inferior. This catalog, with black and white photographs and color reproductions of exquisitely colored weavings, emphasizes that the tradition of Hispanic weaving was born in the interaction among weavers, merchants, and consumers, and has always been an adaptable craft tradition. It explores this trade and how it has changed over time, looking at the historic records of trade in woven goods as well as actual textiles in private and public collections, and visiting many contemporary weavers.
