Introducing the "Soft Melody" Oushak rug from India. This traditional rug features a navy background with a green border, creating a classic design. Crafted with care, these rugs are mostly handwoven by skilled artisans in and around the city of Agra, India.

The material of this rug is a luxurious blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool and either superior local wool or South African wool. This unique composition ensures 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 the Soft Melody rugs apart is the yarn's single-ply characteristic. Each knot incorporates a single thread, resulting in a thicker and heavier yarn. This, along with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, gives the rug a denser and nubbier texture with pronounced knots, adding to its tactile and visual appeal.

The Soft Melody rugs have a pile made of 100% wool and are constructed with a cotton foundation. With a tight spin on the cotton warps and mostly double-wefted construction, these rugs are built to last. The pile height is approximately 3/8 inch, offering a plush feel underfoot. Due to the handspun nature of the yarn, each rug showcases subtle color variations, enhancing its unique aesthetic.

To ensure longevity and vibrant colors, these rugs are dyed using chromium (or chrome) dyes. Unlike inferior synthetic dyes, these high-quality chromium dyes resist fading and maintain their vibrant hues over time. The dyes are primarily imported from Switzerland and applied to the wool in India, showcasing the combination of international and local resources.

Soft Melody Oushak rugs are particularly appealing due to their resemblance to traditional 19th-century Turkish Oushaks, known for their large knots. The single ply of thick yarn used in these rugs creates a delightful nubby texture, especially noticeable at the base of each knot. This texture adds depth and character to the rug, providing a unique aesthetic. Unlike rugs with thicker piles, the subdued pile of Soft Melody Oushaks allows the nubby texture to stand out, avoiding an overly fluffy appearance.

In summary, the Soft Melody Oushak rug is a high-quality and visually appealing piece, meticulously crafted with imported New Zealand wool and showcasing a unique texture. With its traditional design and durable construction, this rug is sure to enhance any space with its timeless beauty.
