In Garous rugs, natural wool, like light gray, black and cream were used without dyeing, as well as herbal dyes for other colors, at the same time. Dyeing was done locally at home by peddlers.
In past, colors of rugs were not monotonous. Villagers supplied piles according to local possibilities and domestic dyeing. They prepared dyes by themselves, unless blue or green colors. To make green color, they made threads yellow; then they sent threads to Bijar to make those green.
Sometimes a primary color was prepared in several times, so sometimes it was darker and another time it became lighter.
Today, dyeing is done in towns, mostly by using chemical dyes. Villagers hardly do it in their houses.
Delightful and lively colors, like red and its hues, specially pink, alliums sepa, black, white, henna, different hues of green, dark blue and white ground, mostly could be seen in Garous rugs.
Contrast of colors with ground are so much, that green, white, alliums sepa, straw color in red ground give special freshness to Garous rugs and make images brilliant.
