More about Red & Orange Persian Rugs

The Significance of Red in Persian Rugs

Red, a color of profound cultural and national significance in Iran, stands at the core of our collection. It is a primary color in Persian rug weaving, symbolizing wealth, power, and the authentic Iranian spirit. The vibrant shades of red found in our Persian rugs come from a variety of natural sources, including madder root (Rubia tinctorum), cochineal insects (known locally as “Lac”), pomegranate skins, wild barberries, sumac, and even certain types of seashells and lichens. These natural dyes have been used for thousands of years, passed down from one generation to the next, to create the distinctive bright reds, deep pomegranate shades, and luxurious velvet reds that signify wealth and power.

The Warmth of Orange in Persian Rugs

The color orange, a symbol of warmth, creativity, and enthusiasm, plays a pivotal role in the art of Persian rug weaving. This vibrant color is traditionally obtained from natural sources, providing a rich palette of shades from the bright hues of saffron to the deep, earthy tones derived from walnut husks and the delicate skins of onions. These natural dyes not only offer a stunning array of orange shades but also imbue each rug with a unique character and story, reflecting the natural beauty and richness of the Persian landscape.

Expert Curated Collection

Our collection of red and orange Persian carpets is distinguished not just by its breathtaking beauty but by the expertise and heritage that Reza Derakhshesh brings. Each rug has been carefully chosen for its quality, historical significance, and the depth of its red hues. From the bright and inviting to the deep and majestic, the oranges and reds in our Persian rugs are a testament to the skilled artisans who have perfected the art of natural dyeing and weaving over centuries.

The Art of Red Dyeing

The art of dyeing red in Persian rugs is a complex, time-honored process, utilizing materials like the valuable “Rounas” plant and the “Red Seed” of the cochineal insect, which thrive in the provinces of Kerman and Khorasan. The intense and resilient red hues these natural elements produce are unmatched, with shades ranging from brick to bright red, achieved through the careful cultivation and processing of these materials.

The Art and Tradition of Orange Dyeing

The art of creating orange hues for Persian rugs is a testament to the skill and ingenuity of Persian artisans. The bright, lively shades of orange seen in our collection are often derived from saffron, one of the most precious and revered spices in the world. The deeper, more subdued tones come from the natural tannins found in walnut husks and the subtle pigments of onion skins. This traditional method of dyeing not only produces a spectrum of orange shades but also ensures that each rug has a unique depth and intensity of color.
