     With its long history and wide distribution, many consider the Ganado a classic Navajo rug style.  Because it always has a red background, this style of rug is sometimes called "Ganado Red."  Typically, Ganado style rugs have a dark border, and the black, white, and grey design is based on one or two central diamonds embellished with geometric elements.  Serrates, crosses, zigzags, and simple geometric shapes decorate the corner spaces outside the central design.
    Trader John Lorenzo Hubbell first popularized Ganado style weavings.  They are named for a famous Navajo Chief the Spanish called Ganado Mucho -- (Many Cattle).  They originated in Ganado, AZ where in 1878 Hubbell founded a trading post which operates today as Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site.
