    If it is made from a natural fiber, like wool, silk, or jute you can dye it. However, the vast majority of carpeting is made of some blend of polyester. These man made fibers are colored using very high heat, hundreds of degrees, which is why the color does not "run" or fade like dyed natural fibers tend to do and would be harder to dye.
