The Vegetal dye types of Navajo Rugs are horizontally banded in pattern and usually without a border. There are three basic types of Vegatel dyed rugs, Wide Ruin, Pine Springs, and the Chinle type. They are named for the Trading posts in the region from where they originated. The patterns used are common to all three types, differing only in the use of color.
