Presenting our exquisite Soft Melody Oushak rug, a true embodiment of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. Originating from the city of Agra, located in India but closeby, these rugs are meticulously handwoven by local artisans who have honed their skills over centuries.

The Soft Melody rug's superior quality lies in its exceptional materials. It is crafted using a luxurious blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (comprising 50-75% of the blend) along with either superior local wool or South African wool. This unique composition ensures a dazzlingly lustrous finish that sets it apart from rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is hand-carded and hand-spun in the vicinity of Agra, supporting the local economy.

What distinguishes this rug further is its yarn's single-ply characteristic. Unlike the more common two-ply yarns, each knot of the Soft Melody rug incorporates a single thread, resulting in a remarkably thicker, denser, and heavier yarn. This feature, combined with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, imbues the rug with a strikingly dense and nubby texture, accentuated by prominently visible knots that add to its distinct tactile and visual allure.

Renowned for their 6x6 quality, these rugs showcase the extraordinary craftsmanship involved, resulting in exceptional durability and unrivaled design clarity.

Constructed with a 100% wool pile and a cotton foundation, these rugs feature tightly spun cotton warps and are predominantly double-wefted. With a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch, the handspun yarn contributes subtle color variations, endowing each rug with a uniquely enchanting aesthetic achieved through the application of artisanal dyeing techniques.

The Soft Melody rugs utilize high-quality chromium (or chrome) dyes that ensure their colors resist fading and maintain their vibrancy over time. This superior dyeing technique, primarily sourced from Switzerland, enhances the rug's longevity and visual appeal, setting it apart from others that may utilize inferior synthetic dyes.

Soft Melody Oushak rugs exude an undeniable charm, reminiscent of the traditional 19th-century Turkish Oushaks. Their large knots, created with a single ply of remarkably thick yarn, grant them a delightful and distinctive nubby texture, particularly noticeable at the base of each knot. It is worth mentioning that their slightly worn appearance not only attests to their age but also adds an extra layer of aesthetic appeal, providing depth and character to the rug.

Unlike rugs with thicker piles that may mask the texture, the subdued pile of Soft Melody Oushaks allows the nubby texture to shine, avoiding any excessive fluffiness that could detract from the rug's visual allure.
