The black is not deep, dark black, but dark gray. This is because of the weave with the ivory. I purchased the same size rug in a different color and this one is not laying flat like the other one. After 2 weeks it still has rippling around the edges. It almost seems lighter weight than the other, but I'm not certain about that. Looks okay, much better than most outdoor rugs, but for the price it could be better quality.
