This weaving is in near excellent condition. One side is only very slightly faded, barely noticeable.The warp count is 9, and the weft count is 36, per inch. Acquired from a private collection in Colorado. The owner purchased this weaving in Gallup Intertribal Ceremonial in 1969. The name on the back of the ribbon is spelled as "Lydia Peshloka," which could be Lydia Peshlakai with her name spelled incorrectly. It is not uncommon for old ribbons and tags to have incorrect spellings.
