Gallup, NM has been associated with the railroad since its inception in the 1880s. It is named after a paymaster for the railroad, David Gallup, "let's go see Gallup to get our pay". In 1924 Gallup built its train depot that still stands today. That is when Gallup saw an increase in tourism and began spending lots of energy and effort to develop the Native American arts trade. Navajo weavings had already been introduced to the rest of America in the late 1800s and early 1900s by mail order catalogs. Not everyone wanted to spend the money for more expensive hand woven Navajo rugs so the Gallup Throw was introduced. This rug was different, it had a cotton warp and many times was left unfinished with fringes at one edge. Today the Gallup Throw is still be woven. However, it is now done mostly by Navajo women that are older and one day we probably wont see many of these weavings. It is lots of work for a piece of handmade art that doesn't demand a high price tag, and that is why it might not be carried on by the younger generation. We have a large selection of these great rugs and like the early 1920's Gallup we offer you the opportunity to take a little piece of Gallup home with you.
