Tones of orange in Oriental rugs such as rust, salmon and peach are very desirable to collectors and rug dealers. Thought to mean devotion, piety and humility orange is found in both modern Persian rugs and antique rugs. There is also a synthetic orange dye used in semi-antique rugs that was not very desirable. Tones of orange were acheived using vegetable dyes by diluting the madder root which was used to make red dye. Orange is commonly observed in Caucasian rugs and Persian Kurdistan rugs.
