Th
e earliest weavings were the Chief ‘s Blankets, and
some
of the old ones are worth a small fortune today.
The basic t
heme has evolved over time, with the first being
basic stripes i
n blue, white, black and brown.
In the second phase
, weavers began to incorporate red into the
weaving, and in the thi
rd phase, the designs became
More elaborate.
Chef’s blankets are square in sh
ape, and when the corners
are folded to meet at the center, the
design is the same as when
is unfolded.
