Resoundingly industrial yet natural like lightning the arrival of the railroad changed the language of American commerce and culture. When the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad supplanted the Santa Fe Trail in the late 19th century among the bounty conveyed from the East was highly prized Germantown yarn which was given to skilled Navajo weavers in the region. With Iron Horse Trail Native American designer Romona Sakiestewa exalts Germantown pictorial weavings and eyedazzlers of the 1880s interpreting the design elements with practiced eyes assessing more than a century of history. Woven by Pendleton Woolen Mills exclusively for Dewey Trading Company. 82% pure virgin wool/ 18% cotton. Made int he USA. Dry clean only.
