Gallup Throws and Samplers

Gallup Throws and Samplers

During the first several decades of the 20th century, weavers near railroad stops and tourist centers made small, loosely woven, pictorial mats. Now known as Gallup throws, these inexpensive items were a favorite, easy to transport souvenir among visitors to the southwest. Pictorial and geometric “rugs,” too small for use on the floor and typically made with commercially spun and dyed yarns, remain a staple of the souvenir trade to this day.
