     The Storm style of Navajo weaving is distinguished strictly by its design.  The Storm pattern is a bordered design in which the middle of the weaving represents the center of the universe.  Four corner rectangles represent the homes of the four winds; or by some interpretations, the four sacred mountains of the Navajo world.  Zigzag lightning bolts connect these corner rectangles with the center of the design.  The space between the main design and the border often contains stylized elements such as clouds or other geometric elements.
     The Storm style of weaving originated in the western region of the Navajo Nation around Tuba City, AZ. Although the Storm is the only rug style that purports to be an abstract portrayal of a natural event, it is widely believed that a trader in Tuba City developed and promoted the style among weavers.
