Red, Terracotta, Orange Rugs
more info...Red rugs are one of the most popular choices around for rug colours. In modern rugs, they feature prominently in soft, warm red wool rugs. In rugs from new synthetic fibres. And in rich red rug tones in long pile shaggy rugs. These red rugs tend to vary from rich, deep burgundy and wine reds to softer, earthier terracotta reds, and then to orange rugs and light pastel pinks. For traditional rugs, the deep burgundy reds and Afghan red have a long tradition in classic designs, often combined with softer, lighter colours against the overall red background.
Red, Terracotta, Burgundy, Pink and Orange RugsContemporary red rugs tend to be rich reds, near a burgundy or other wine colour, while some of these tones are also termed berry reds. Amongst the lighter reds, terracotta and rust colours, which have hints of brown in them, have been very popular.
Orange rugs are a more specialist colour and require careful consideration if you are trying to match with other orange fabrics in the room. Oddly enough, colour research has shown that as people getting older, they tend to like orange less.
Pink rugs can be hard to find. Many customers want a real "girlie" or "lipstick" pink, but rugmakers have found this hard to replicate, especially in wool rugs which favour more natural colours. Synthetic fibre rugs produce a better "lipstick pink," while silky texture of a sheepskin and sheepkin dyes also reproduce this kind of pink well.
Amongst traditional rugs, the red you will most often see is again a deep, burgundy red, either produced from natural vegetable dyes in authentic handmade originals, or by newer chemical dyes that also produce a fine effect. Afghan red is one popular term for this kind of deep red. Some traditional rugs also come in a soft pink, often nearer a light rose colour, and are often referred to as rose pink rugs.
