     The Teec Nos Pos style of Navajo weaving is a bold, exciting and elaborate design.  Many believe this style developed from pictures of Persian rugs while others see no connection and believe that traders introduced this design to the Navajo People from designs on flour sacks.  The name, which means "Cottonwoods in a Circle," comes from a settlement in the northeast corner of the Navajo Nation.
     Always surrounded by a wide border and filled with an exuberant variety of motifs, Teec Nos Pos style rugs are usually large, and therefore very expensive.  An elaborate center is enhanced with stylized feathers and arrows.  Steps and angular hooks extend from the points of diamonds and triangles, while zigags are abundant.  The many, brightly colored yarns are used to create a visually stunning design in the Teec Nos Pos style.
