The Burnham family has been trading with the native people of the Four Corners area for five generations. Over the years, the Burnham’s have gained recognition for their dedication to the Navajo People and their art. They are noted for their encouragement of innovation and quality in Navajo textiles. Bruce and Virginia Burnham have been trading rugs for more than 30 years and in that time they have helped to develop several distinct rug styles including the New Lands Raised outline, Burntwater, Germantown Revival and Spider Rock.
