Barbara Teller Ornelas and Lynda Teller Pete are 5th-generation master Navajo weavers, who specialize in the Two Grey Hills style. This style is identified primarily by a double-diamond, intricate geometric design. Barbara and Lynda learned to weave when they were very young. They were raised at the Two Grey Hills Trading Post in New Mexico, where their father, Sam Teller, worked. Their mother, Ruth, demonstrated weaving at the trading post, attracting a constant flow of tourists.
