|Natural Carpet Dyes|
The many colors of Turkish carpets are mostly derived from natural local materials. The list on the right describes the colors obtained from each material.
The wool is boiled with the dyeing material until the required shade is achieved, the longer the boiling the deeper the color.
Some Turkish carpets are produced using only the natural color of the wool using no dye at all. Natural wool colors include varying shades of black, brown and ivory.
All colors are subdued unless described otherwise.
Different shades depend on the boiling time.
Some colors are achieved using a mixture of different color dyes.
