Introducing the "Soft Melody" Oushak rug, originating from Agra, India, known for its rich tradition, exceptional craftsmanship, and innovative design. Handwoven by skilled artisans in their homes, these rugs showcase centuries-old techniques honed in the surrounding regions of Agra.

The quality of the Soft Melody rug is enhanced by its luxurious blend of imported New Zealand wool (50-75%) and either superior local or South African wool. This blend results in 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.

What sets these rugs apart is the unique characteristic of the single-ply yarn. Each knot incorporates a single thread, creating a denser and nubbier texture that is visually and tactilely distinctive. The use of asymmetrical Persian-type knots further adds to the rug's appeal.

The Soft Melody rugs are renowned for their 6x6 quality, reflecting the intricate craftsmanship involved. This density contributes to the rug's durability and intricate design clarity.

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

To ensure long-lasting vibrancy, Soft Melody rugs are dyed using high-quality chromium (chrome) dyes that resist fading and maintain their vibrant hues over time. These dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland, combine international expertise with local resources.

Soft Melody Oushak rugs are particularly sought after for their resemblance to traditional 19th-century Turkish Oushaks, thanks to their comparably large knots. The use of single-ply thick yarn contributes to their unique and delightful nubby texture, noticeable at the base of each knot.

While traditional Oushaks tend to have a dense pile that wears down over time, Soft Melody rugs offer a pleasantly worn appearance that adds depth and character to their design. The subdued pile allows the nubby texture to stand out, avoiding an overly fluffy appearance that may detract from the rug's visual appeal.
