The Chief style of rug was traded to the high status members
of the Pueblo and Plains peoples; giving the blanket its
name: "Chief." The earliest established weaving
style, the Chief is distinguished by its generally square
blanket shape and simple design in blue, red, black, and
first phase Chiefs were woven in plain stripes of blue,
white, black, and brown. During a second phase,
weavers added short red bars to the design. Third
phase Chiefs, with stepped triangle motifs and rose-colored
wool sometimes replacing the red, are the most popular
today. In the fourth phase, the stripes were subsumed
into squares against a solid background. Fourth
phase Chiefs are rarely woven today.
