Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, a distinguished rug that combines tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. Originating from the region around Agra, India, these rugs are meticulously handwoven by artisans in their homes, using techniques honed over centuries.

The quality of this rug is evident in its exceptional materials. It is made with a luxurious blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (comprising 50-75% of the blend) and either superior local wool or South African wool. This unique composition results in a shinier, 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 region's local economy.

What truly sets the Soft Melody rug apart is its yarn's singular characteristic. Unlike commonly used two-ply yarns, each knot of this rug incorporates a single thread, creating a denser and heavier yarn. This, combined with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, gives the rug a distinct texture and visual appeal, with visible and pronounced knots.

The Soft Melody rugs are renowned for their 6x6 quality, reflecting the intricate craftsmanship involved. This density contributes to the rug's durability and enhances the clarity of its intricate design.

Additionally, these rugs feature a 100% wool pile and are constructed with cotton foundations. The tightly spun cotton warps and double-wefted construction ensure strength and stability. With a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch, these rugs offer a comfortable and luxurious feel. The handspun nature of the yarn adds subtle color variations, resulting in a unique aesthetic achieved through artisanal dyeing techniques.

Ensuring longevity and vibrant coloration, the Soft Melody rugs are dyed using high-quality chromium (or chrome) dyes. These dyes, primarily sourced from Switzerland, resist fading and maintain their brilliance over time. Unlike rugs using inferior synthetic dyes, this rug's colors remain steadfast.

Indulge in the exceptional craftsmanship and timeless beauty of the Soft Melody rug.
