The Teec Nos Pos style of Navajo weaving is a bold, exciting and elaborate design.

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.
