Dyck Dwelling Textiles

Excavations at the Dyck Cliff Dwelling yielded a large and impressive collection of well-preserved textiles and cordage. Their presence was one of the main reasons why Dr. Charles Rozaire agreed in 1961 to excavate the site. The Dyck textiles join those from Antelope
House and Tonto National Monument as one the most important textile collections recovered from the greater Southwest.

This exhibit offers a preliminary inventory of the textiles and cordage from the Dyck Cliff Dwelling, with descriptions of the raw materials
and tools, weaving structures and techniques, yarn and fabric colors, clothing types, and other informative data.
