Birthplace is China silk. Now the silkworm, in addition to the Celestial Empire, bred in Iran, Turkey, India, and some former Soviet republics.

The exceptions are some tribal rugs, where cotton is used to emphasize the contrast in the image fine details. What dyes are used? As we know, these handmade rugs is composed only of natural yarn – wool, silk and cotton. But with the colors, everything is different. Even in countries with centuries-old culture of carpet weaving is increasingly synthetic dyes are used along with natural. Most often, the yarn for the carpet color is 'Synthetic'. Sometimes synthetic dyes are used in conjunction with the natural. Rugs, colors and shades which give only natural (natural) dyes are less common, usually tribal rugs. Small set of colors gives the creator of the carpet even the basic material with which he works – sheep wool.

Depending on the color sheep wool is white, brown, yellowish-brown, yellow and gray – and is sometimes used unpainted. Of course, for a rich range of oriental carpet that is not enough. Until the mid-19 th century for dyeing yarn used only natural dyes. About them to say 'paint donated by nature', but as at least in one respect, this is not true.
