Introducing the Soft Melody Oushak rug - a traditional design originating from India. This rug features a seafoam background and a slate border, creating a striking contrast. The main color of the rug is teal, adding a vibrant touch to any space.

Crafted from high-quality materials, the Soft Melody rug is made of wool on cotton. The wool used in this rug is a luxurious blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (comprising 50-75% of the blend) and either superior local wool or South African wool. The imported New Zealand wool is hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn in the regions surrounding Agra, contributing to the local economy.

What sets this rug apart is the unique single-ply characteristic of the yarn. Unlike most rugs, each knot of the Soft Melody rug incorporates a single thread, resulting in a thicker and denser yarn. The use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot further enhances the rug's density and texture, with knots that are visibly pronounced.

The Soft Melody rug boasts a 6x6 quality, reflecting the intricate craftsmanship involved. The 100% wool pile and cotton foundations, tightly spun cotton warps, and mostly double-wefted construction contribute to the rug's robustness and durability. The pile height measures approximately 3/8 inch, providing a luxurious feel underfoot.

Aesthetically pleasing, the hand-spun nature of the yarn ensures subtle color variations, giving each rug a unique appeal. The dyeing techniques employed utilize high-quality chromium (or chrome) dyes, imported primarily from Switzerland. This ensures the rugs resist fading and maintain their vibrant hues over time.

Soft Melody Oushak rugs are particularly appealing due to their resemblance to traditional 19th-century Turkish Oushaks. These rugs use a single ply of very thick yarn, resulting in a delightful nubby texture, especially noticeable at the base of each knot. This texture adds depth and character to the rug's design.

Unlike rugs with thicker piles, the Soft Melody Oushak rug allows the nubby texture to stand out, avoiding an overly fluffy appearance. This rug's design and quality make it a timeless addition to any space, complementing both traditional and contemporary decor.
