Introducing the "Soft Melody" Indian Oushak rug, a traditional and exquisite piece that emanates a sense of elegance and craftsmanship. This rug originates from the region surrounding Agra, India, and is meticulously handwoven by skilled artisans who have honed their practices over centuries.

The Soft Melody rug boasts a luxurious blend of materials, with 50-75% imported, long-staple New Zealand wool combined with superior local or South African wool. This unique composition creates a shinier and more lustrous finish compared to rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is carefully hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn, supporting the local economy and ensuring high-quality craftsmanship.

What sets this rug apart is its use of single-ply yarns, unlike the more common two-ply yarns. Each knot of the Soft Melody rug incorporates a single thread, resulting in a denser and substantially heavier yarn. This feature, combined with an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, creates a nubbier texture with knots that are visibly pronounced, adding to the rug's distinctive tactile and visual appeal.

Crafted with a 100% wool pile on a cotton foundation, this rug is tightly spun and mostly double-wefted, ensuring durability and longevity. The pile height measures approximately 3/8 inch, providing a comfortable and luxurious feel underfoot. The handspun nature of the yarn also contributes to subtle color variations, resulting in a unique aesthetic brought about by the artisanal dyeing techniques.

The Soft Melody rug utilizes high-quality chromium dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland, ensuring exceptional colorfastness and resistance to fading over time. Unlike rugs using inferior synthetic dyes, these rugs maintain their vibrant hues, adding to their longevity and visual appeal.

In terms of its design, the Soft Melody Oushak rug showcases a resemblance to traditional 19th-century Turkish Oushaks, characterized by its comparably large knots. Its distinct use of single-ply and nubby texture, particularly noticeable at the base of each knot, sets it apart from other rugs. This nubby texture offers a delightful tactile experience and adds depth and character to the rug's overall aesthetic.

With its traditional charm and exceptional craftsmanship, the Soft Melody Indian Oushak rug is a testament to the rich history and artistry of rug-making. It is a timeless piece that will effortlessly enhance any space, exuding elegance and beauty for years to come.
