This weaving is in excellent condition. There are only minor residual fibers on one end from a sleeve being sewn to the weaving for hanging. The warp count is 9, and the weft count is 30, per inch. Acquired from a private collection in Arizona. The owner inherited it from his father around early 2020. His father inherited it from his father (the owner's grandfather) Robert Schmitz, who owned “Bob's Fine Men's Clothing” in Durango, Colorado. Mr. Schmitz started collecting in the 1930-40s, mostly through trading.
