Black in Persian Rugs

Black Oriental rugs convey a restful and mysterious feeling. Black is more common in contemporary and modern Persian rugs. In older wool rugs black was used to accent a design or draw attention to a particular pattern. Dark brown and black outlines allow a variety of other colors to be used in the same rug without clashing. Black fields can be found in modern Hamedans.
