Cultural Period: Ancestral Puebloan and Hohokam

Description: (left)weft wrap, open-weave cotton cloth recovered from the Wupatki Pueblo trash midden; (right) plain-weave cotton cloth dyed red. The North Country is too cold for cotton to grow, so the cloth, or the cotton from which it was woven, was likely traded to the Sinagua by their southern neighbors, the Hohokam.

Dimensions: (left) 8 cm x 4.5 cm x 0.1 cm; (right) 14.0 cm x 12.5 cm.

Collection: On display at Wupatki National Monument (catalog card 1, catalog card 2).
