Introducing the "Soft Melody Oushak" rug, a traditional design hailing from India. Handwoven by skilled artisans in and around the city of Agra, these rugs are crafted with precision and attention to detail.

One of the defining features of the Soft Melody Oushak rug is its material composition. Made from a blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (comprising 50-75% of the blend) and either superior local wool or South African wool, this rug boasts a luxurious and lustrous finish. The imported New Zealand wool is hand-carded and spun into yarn in the regions surrounding Agra, supporting the local economy.

What sets these rugs apart is their unique single-ply characteristic. Unlike the more common two-ply yarns, each knot of a Soft Melody Oushak rug incorporates a single thread. This results in a denser and heavier yarn, contributing to the rug's textured appearance. The use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot further enhances the intricate design and tactile appeal.

With a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch, these rugs feature a 100% wool pile and are constructed with cotton foundations. The yarn's handspun nature ensures subtle color variations, making each rug truly one-of-a-kind. The employment of chromium dyes provides these rugs with light-fast qualities, preventing fading and maintaining their vibrant hues over time.

The Soft Melody Oushak rugs bear a resemblance to traditional 19th-century Turkish Oushaks, known for their comparably large knots and dense pile. The nubby texture, visible particularly at the base of each knot, adds a delightful tactile element to these rugs. This texture is further enhanced by the subdued pile, allowing the nubby texture to stand out without appearing overly fluffy.

Embrace tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation with the Soft Melody Oushak rug. Experience the stunning design and quality that only a handwoven rug can offer.
