Verde Valley Blanket
Verde Valley is called Matkamvaha by the Northeastern Yavapai, the first human inhabitants of this valley in central Arizona. They were a hunting and gathering people, sometimes migrating to different areas to follow the ripening of edible plants. This unusual blanket design and its color (verde is green in Spanish) and stepped triangles reminded us of the beauty of the fertile Verde Valley, surrounded by mesas and rugged mountain peaks. This blanket is robe size, the size preferred by Native Americans for ceremonial purposes and wrapping about oneself as a robe. Impressive as a wall hanging and practical when folded on a sofa or at the foot of a bed. 64" x 80"
