The inspiration behind this rug were the majestic Melaleucas (or Saltwater Paperbarks as they are more commonly know in Western Australia) that sit along the banks of the the King River inlet in Nanarup’s great south west.

Melaleuca's are known for their white and grey, papery bark which we have replicated throughout the expertly woven flecks in this thick felted wool yarn rug.

The rug is similar to the Little Beach but is more grey in colour. We also have a blue version called Middleton and our Stirling is an earthy brown.

Each rug has been hand crafted to last a lifetime and is hand woven on a felted yarn weft rather than cotton like most rugs. The felted warp becomes the beautiful tassels at each end in a mix of naturals, browns with smatterings  of blues and pinks.

Our Melaleucas rug is made from 75% New Zealand wool and 25% cotton 

Why choose a wool rug?

  • A wool rug is naturally fire retardant, dirt and liquid resistant and will last a lifetime. We believe wool is an investment in the long term.
  • Wool is a natural non-toxic sustainable product that will eventually break down unlike many other cheaper versions of rugs. 


    Made in India all our rugs are made with transparency, from the yarn making to the weaving to the final washing and cutting. We make all our rugs in small weaving runs in order to keep our weavers in work all year around.

    Ohh is fully accredited with Goodweave International. An international body governing the carpet industry. No child or forced labour has been used in the making of this rug.

    As a licensed brand of Goodweave you have the assurance that your rug has been ethically made and part funds are used to rescue and educate children found in the carpet industry.

    Our cotton washable rugs can be washed in a domestic washing machine. Use cold setting and a delicate wash. Hang out to dry and vacuum as per normal to fluff up your rug. Make sure your machine is larger enough - space in the machine is required to give a good wash and not damage the fibres. 

    Larger cotton rugs may not fit in a domestic washing machine and can be taken to the laundromat or drycleaners. 

    Rug Sizes and Approximate Weights 

    Make sure your machine is large enough with space for your rug to move around. 

    Wash bath mats on their own as well. 

    120 x 180cm 3-4kgs - needs at least a 5-6kg machine

    150 x 210cm -6-7kgs - needs at least a 9kg machine

    200 x 300cm - 10-12kgs - needs at least a 15kg machine



    Be careful not to over vacuum thinking it will remove all the lint. Over vacuuming causes damage to the soft fibres. It is normal to experience some pilling initially but will settle. Vacuum only once a week and shake in between. Vacuuming more will not speed up the process. 

    They are a lightweight rug so vacuuming needs to be made in the same direction. 


    Wool is naturally flame retardant and holds up well to daily wear and tear. Our rugs contain New Zealand wool giving it a soft and superior feel. Wool is naturally dirt and liquid repellant and is relatively easy to clean.

    The cleaning of your rug:

    Your rug will benefit from regular vacuuming and a shake to remove dust particles.

    Your wool rug should not be used in wet areas.

    If you happen to spill liquid we suggest you tap off the liquid as quickly as possible. Then using a damp cloth mop up any excess fluid in a dabbing motion. Soapy water can be used. Do not soak  or rub violently but continue to dab until the stain is soaked up.

    It is almost always best to engage the services of a professional carpet & upholstery cleaning company if the stain is stubborn or needs a thorough clean. To get a really expert job done entrust the work to a carpet cleaning company.
    Tell your cleaner to use low water pressure and to clean on a non- porous surface in case of any colour leakage.
