The term Rio Grande refers to a particular style of blanket that encompasses the entire weaving tradition of Hispanic New Mexico. While Rio Grande blankets demonstrate a great variety in design, many, such as the one that inspired this MouseRug/CoasterRug, feature elements borrowed from the weavings of “Saltillo-style” serapes, made in many places in Mexico. Some of those “borrowed’ elements are evident in this rug: the serrated central diamond, bold geometric patterns, and striped borders. FA. 1964.20.3 Rio Grande Blanket, New Mexico, nd.
