Introducing the Soft Melody Oushak rug, a stunning piece that captures the essence of tradition and craftsmanship. Originating from India, specifically in and around the city of Agra, these rugs are handwoven by skilled artisans who follow age-old practices refined over centuries.

One of the key highlights of the Soft Melody rug is its exceptional material composition. It combines imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (comprising 50-75% of the blend) with superior local wool or South African wool. This blend results in a luxurious finish with a lustrous sheen, setting it apart from rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is meticulously hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn in the regions surrounding Agra, supporting the local economy.

What truly distinguishes the Soft Melody rugs is the unique single-ply characteristic of the yarn. Each knot incorporates a single thread, creating a thicker, denser yarn that gives the rug a distinct nubbier texture. This texture, combined with an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, enhances the visual and tactile appeal of the rug.

The Soft Melody rugs are renowned for their 6x6 quality, showcasing intricate craftsmanship and intricate design clarity. With a 100% wool pile and cotton foundations, these rugs are tightly woven and mostly double-wefted. They have a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch, providing a comfortable underfoot feel. Each rug exhibits subtle color variations due to the handspun nature of the yarn and the use of artisanal dyeing techniques.

Featuring chromium (or chrome) dyes, the Soft Melody rugs boast excellent color retention, resisting fading and maintaining their vibrant hues over time. These high-quality dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland, ensure long-lasting beauty.

Soft Melody Oushak rugs are highly sought after due to their resemblance to traditional 19th-century Turkish Oushaks, characterized by comparably large knots. The single-ply thick yarn used in these rugs adds a delightful nubby texture, visible at the base of each knot. While traditional Oushaks often exhibit wear, resulting in a reduced pile, the Soft Melody rugs embrace this worn appearance, adding depth and character to the design.

Unlike rugs with thicker piles that may mask the texture, the subdued pile of Soft Melody Oushaks allows the nubby texture to shine, creating an attractive visual appeal. Embracing tradition and innovation, the Soft Melody Oushak rug effortlessly marries timeless design with modern craftsmanship.
