What's a better background for pictures?

What does every body think about different background colors for picture taking? I made up a black one but I'm thinking about a white / cream one as well. Pictures are of a bottle with a jug knot tied (great instructable, look it up) while the other is from jessyratfink's Instructable "Sew a Where Things are Hat + Pattern!" with a white backdrop.

What do you prefer?

By the way, the black back drop is mine, I have it hung up on a curtain rod with a stool in front with the cloth draping over, then with the item placed on top. Still new at photography but I think it's an ok picture.

That backdrop behind the grl needs to be ironed.  If it was random wrinkled that would be ok but the fold marks are distracting.
Pssssh, adds character.

(real reason: I am lazy)
It helps add "dimension" too ;-)

I have found that when using my "backdrop", but it's hard to store otherwise. For that picture I think it adds a nice, imperfect effect, if you get what I mean.
I know how hard it is to store stuff like that.  That's why they are rolled on a tube.  I had one that I made out of a sheet along time ago and used earth tone spray paint .  I lived in a small apt and had very little room so I stored it in a box just stuffed in.  Not tight but it gave the wrinkles a randomness and no folds.
