Iranian orange or rich ocher color has been used in Iranian dyeing, carpet weaving, and pottery industries since ancient times. Persian orange is also obtained from the soil of the Hormuz coast and consists of iron oxide powder in the soil.
Knowing the history of the word orange will also show why it is called Iranian. In the past centuries, Iranians first sent the orange fruit to China through the Silk Road from Iran, and the Chinese produced a sweeter fruit called orange by transplanting it. Later, this fruit entered Iran through Portugal, and the root of the name orange remained in the English name of this color.
