Introducing the "Soft Melody" Oushak rug, a traditional design originating from India. This rug features a grey background with a sage border, adding depth and distinction to the overall design. Made from a combination of wool on cotton, this new rug showcases exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Crafted by skilled artisans in and around the city of Agra, India, the Soft Melody rug collection embodies a rich tradition of rug weaving. Using a luxurious blend of imported New Zealand wool and local or South African wool, these rugs have a lustrous finish that sets them apart. The imported New Zealand wool is hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn, contributing to the local economy and ensuring sustainable practices.

One of the unique aspects of the Soft Melody rugs is their single-ply yarn, which gives them a denser and nubbier texture. The asymmetrical Persian-type knot further adds to the rug's tactile and visual appeal, creating a distinct pattern. With a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch, these rugs are constructed with a cotton foundation and tightly spun cotton warps. They are mostly double-wefted, ensuring durability and longevity.

To maintain vibrant colors over time, these rugs are dyed using high-quality chromium dyes. This dyeing method, primarily imported from Switzerland, ensures that the colors resist fading and remain vibrant for years to come. The handspun nature of the yarn also results in subtle color variations, making each rug unique and adding to its aesthetic appeal.

The Soft Melody Oushak rug pays homage to traditional 19th-century Turkish Oushaks with its comparably large knots. The use of a single ply of thick yarn contributes to its delightful nubby texture, which is particularly noticeable at the base of each knot. This texture adds depth and character to the rug, creating a visually appealing and distinct look.

Unlike rugs with thicker piles that may hide the texture, the Soft Melody Oushak rug's more subdued pile allows the nubby texture to stand out. This avoids an overly fluffy appearance, ensuring that the rug maintains its visual appeal and showcases its unique characteristics.

In conclusion, the "Soft Melody" Oushak rug from India is a beautifully crafted rug that combines tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. Its luxurious materials, intricate design, and unique texture make it a standout piece for any interior.
