Description: Tribe/Region of Origin: Navajo, Artist: Vera Myers, Type of Item: Dye chart, sampler, Signature: On back, Note: Second place ribbon on the back, wood framed behind glass of different dried samples of vegetation. Navajo vegetal Dye charts were developed in the 1950's by well known Mabel Burnside Myers from Pine Springs Arizona. The dye chart is an art form, but it also identifies the plants and flowers needed to produce specific colored dyes for weaving. Most of the plants are gathered seasonally at an elevation of 5,000 to 8,000 fr on the Navajo Reservation. Today few people can do this type of art because of the work and time involved. The Navajo still use most of these plants for ceremonial and medicinal purposes.*

Depending on the size of the item, I ship Priority USPS Mail or UPS in the States. I will also ship internationally but will need the destination country to calculate the shipping charges.
All items will be insured for cost of purchase given their uniqueness .
For international shipments, I use Priority International or First Class Mail. Priority International has a tracking number, but not all countries scan packages. You may prefer regular First Class International mail, which is just as secure.
All International Customers receive sharp, clear photos of their paid customs form, declaration and postal receipts.
All items will be packaged using the best methods available to prevent any damage while in transit. When appropriate I provide, tracking information, dates, and or address information needed.
