Introducing the "Soft Melody" Indian Oushak Rug, a traditional masterpiece in slate background with a turquoise border. With its origins in Agra, India, this handwoven rug showcases the perfect blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation.
Crafted by skilled artisans in their homes, the "Soft Melody" rug boasts a luxurious composition of imported New Zealand wool and superior local or South African wool. This unique blend ensures a shinier and more lustrous finish compared to rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is meticulously processed by hand, contributing to the local economy and sustaining the craft.
What sets this rug apart is the use of a single-thread, single-ply characteristic yarn. Unlike the common two-ply yarns, each knot in the "Soft Melody" rug incorporates a single thread, resulting in a denser and nubbier texture. The asymmetrical Persian-type knot further enhances the rug's tactile and visual appeal, with knots that are pronounced and distinctive.
Featuring the renowned 6x6 quality, these rugs exhibit intricate craftsmanship and design clarity. Constructed with a 100% wool pile and cotton foundations, they boast a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch. The handspun nature of the yarn creates subtle color variations, giving each rug a unique aesthetic through artisanal dyeing techniques.
The longevity and vibrant coloration of these rugs are a result of the use of high-quality chromium dyes. Resistant to fading, these dyes maintain the rug's vibrant hues over time, offering light-fast qualities. Primarily imported from Switzerland, these dyes are carefully applied to the wool in India, combining international and local resources to create a lasting masterpiece.
The "Soft Melody" Oushak rugs bear a resemblance to traditional 19th-century Turkish Oushaks, primarily due to their comparably large knots. With a charming nubby texture, visible particularly at the base of each knot, these rugs add depth and character to any space. Unlike rugs with thicker piles, the subdued pile of Soft Melody Oushaks allows the nubby texture to stand out, avoiding an overly fluffy appearance that might detract from the rug's visual appeal.
Indulge in the timeless beauty and exceptional craftsmanship of the "Soft Melody" Indian Oushak Rug.
