Introducing the Soft Melody Oushak Rug, a stunning piece of craftsmanship and tradition originating from India. Handwoven by skilled artisans in the vicinity of Agra, these rugs embody centuries of practiced techniques.

The Soft Melody Rug's exceptional quality begins with its material, a luxurious blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool and superior local or South African wool. This blend creates a vibrant and lustrous finish, distinct from rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is painstakingly hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn, supporting the local economy and ensuring sustainability.

What sets these rugs apart is the yarn's unique single-ply characteristic. Unlike the more common two-ply yarns, each knot incorporates a single thread, resulting in a denser and heavier yarn. This, combined with the use of asymmetrical Persian-type knots, creates a texture that is nubbier and visually striking.

The Soft Melody Oushak Rug is renowned for its 6x6 quality, showcasing intricate craftsmanship and design clarity. With a 100% wool pile and a cotton foundation, these rugs are tightly spun and mostly double-wefted, lending them long-lasting durability. The pile height measures approximately 3/8 inch, with subtle color variations resulting from artisanal dyeing techniques.

What sets these rugs further apart is their chromedye coloration. Employing high-quality chromium dyes from Switzerland, these rugs resist fading and maintain their vibrant hues over time. This attention to detail ensures that the Soft Melody Oushak Rug remains visually stunning for years to come.

True to their traditional 19th-century Turkish Oushak counterparts, Soft Melody Oushak Rugs feature large knots and a unique nubby texture. This texture is a result of using a single ply of very thick yarn, reminiscent of the worn appearance found in antique Oushaks. This worn texture adds depth and character to the rug, distinguishing it from rugs with thicker piles.

In summary, the Soft Melody Oushak Rug is a testament to the rich tradition of Indian craftsmanship. Its luxurious blend of imported New Zealand wool and superior local or South African wool, combined with its unique single-ply construction and chromedye coloration, creates a rug that is not only visually stunning but also durable and long-lasting. With its resemblance to traditional Turkish Oushaks and its delightful nubby texture, this rug is sure to add charm and elegance to any space.
