Why We Use Organic Dyes for Rugs

Updated: Jul 19, 2023

Organic dyes are used in traditional Persian rugs for several reasons. First, vegetable dyes were the only option available when these rugs were first created. Before 1850, there weren’t other choices aside from animal or vegetable dyes. Even after synthetic options were available, traditional craftspeople often kept using pure organic dyes.

It’s a common misconception that organic dyes result in dull and muted colors. Anyone who has seen Persian carpets and rugs that use pure organic dyes can attest to their beauty and vibrancy. Craftspeople using organic dyes can create stunning colors including royal blue, earthy brown tones, and brilliant red. Just look at the variation of traditionally made rugs available today to get a sense of the colors.
