Brown is a popular dye in tribal Oriental rugs. Vegetable dyes were obtained from nut shells, tree bark and iron. Some of the brown dye used in antique Caucasian and Persian rugs was corrosive, these rugs today can be identified by the low pile in the areas where wool dyed with this brown dye was used. Brown in Persian rugs is thought to represent fertility, earth and soil. Brown can be found in all types of Oriental rugs and is especially common in tribal rugs like Baluch or Tekke Bokharas.
