Painted Quilts from the Hopi Mesas

Painted Quilts from the Hopi Mesas

The Hopi people of northeast Arizona live in 12 villages dotted across what are referred to as First Mesa, Second Mesa, and Third Mesa. They have a long history of producing beautiful cotton and wool blankets, robes, belts, and ceremonial sashes. Quiltmaking became a tradition after its introduction to Hopi women by Christian missionaries more than 100 years ago. Hopi artists draw upon designs unique to their culture, often seen in pottery and baskets. The IQM exhibit features painted quilts of a wide variety, made for wedding and baby gifts, for family use, for personal satisfaction, and sometimes for sale.
