Taos Indian Trading Co. was established in 1987 and has been located on Santa Monica Boulevard in the heart of downtown Santa Monica for over 28 years.
Today, visitors from all over the world seek out Taos Indian Trading Co. for unique, quality jewelry, pottery, sculpture, rugs, fetish carvings, contemporary paintings and prints, Kachinas, masks, beadwork, concho belts, and a variety of other artifacts representing 57 tribes. In particular, we are pleased to offer many authentic works by Southwest Plains, and Northwest Coast tribe artists and many items are one of a kind. We enjoy close relations with the artists we represent, and we have worked together with many of them for decades. Every few months we go to the Southwest to buy directly from the artists at their homes on the reservation.
We also provide services in jewelry repair, custom gold and silversmithing, as well as assistance in helping Native American art collectors find the items they are looking for. Our services also include written appraisals and certificates of authenticity. Todd Swift of Taos Indian Trading Co. has provided artifacts and jewelry, or designed custom jewelry for movies such as "Contact" with Jodie Foster, Aliens with Sigorney Weaver, Windtalkers, Lonesome Dove, Return to Lonesome Dove, Brave, and Get Shorty and most recently True Detective on HBO.
