T
he loom used by Navajo weavers contributes directly
to th
e distinctiveness of a Navajo weaving.
All Navaj
o weavings are created on a vertical loom, as
opposed to th
e horizontal or treadle loom used by
European or M

It is a simple contrapt

trunks set vertically with
horizontal beams lashed to
them, making a very rigid fr
ame.
The loom produces a result that is
distinctly Navajo
