If you believe that green is the colour of money, it is time to rewire that belief. In reality, the colour does not directly mean money. It symbolises growth and prosperity. Why green? Because that is the colour of the tree. An embodiment of the power of the tree. Life is real wealth. As the vision of nature, as the grace of Al Khidr, who guards the oceans and manifests divine knowledge—Rugshop celebrates all the ethereal accents of the colour green in the form of beautiful rugs. Discover our traditional green carpet rug collections, contemporary floral patterns, abstract concepts or plain, simple, solid colour rugs. One colour, numerous shades, and an endless spectrum of creative possibilities.


A Look Into The History and Culture of Green Rugs


Even though there is little understanding of how the colour was produced, there was a strong presence of green fabrics and clothing in the ancient Mesopotamian civilisation of Egypt. As an additive colour, it could have been produced by mixing indigo pigments with yellow pigments taken from saffron and crocus plants. Historical studies indicate a wide use of copper and malachite to produce green dyes. Whatever the process, the colour was certainly expensive and luxurious in ancient times; that was the fashion of royalty or someone that wealthy. In contrast to the expensive clothing, which proves that green dyes did exist during ancient times, there is little to no evidence of green rugs in this period, probably because rugs were considered more humble to bear the expensive dye.


The Persian tribes were probably the first to use green dyes in rugmaking. Pazyryk Carpets, which are the earliest specimens of pile carpets crafted in the Pazyryk Valleys of Siberia, used green dyes on wool carpets. Over time, the Khamseh tribes also featured green accents on their rugs.  But wasn’t until the Mughal period, circa the 16th century, that green colour rugs gained more prominence. Later, we can see more creativity in Damascene rugs, Tabriz rugs, and Feraghan rugs that came from the southern depths of Tehran. The majority of tribes in the Persian and Oriental regions were Islamic, which has deep traditional associations with the green colour; hence, we can see it prevailing in their rugs in later periods.

Frequently Asked Questions about Green Rugs


1. What Are the Best Materials for Green Rugs?

There is no specific “best material” for this, but if you are talking about our collection, then we have the best of our green rugs in wool, chenille and polyester variants. But since we keep updating our catalogue, it is better to keep your options wide open.  


2. What Rooms or Spaces Are Best for Placing Green Rugs?

 It is not about the colour but more about the shade or hue that you should consider. Area rugs should generally be placed in contrast to the colour of the floor since this will help to more clearly define the layout's edges. Another option is to choose the type of colour scheme, like earthy, vibrant, muted or neutral—following these characteristics will help you narrow your search.

First things first, yes, they are. However, you must understand that our catalogue stocks vast types of genuine vintage items that are aged over 20 years, as well as modern vintage-style floor coverings that create the ambience. We urge you to research our product description or get in touch with us if you are looking for specific items to invest in.
