Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, a rug of exceptional quality and craftsmanship. This rug originates from India, specifically from the region surrounding the city of Agra. Handwoven by skillful artisans in their homes using traditional techniques passed down through generations, these rugs are a testament to their dedication and expertise.

The Soft Melody rug is made with a luxurious blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool, which makes up 50-75% of the composition, along with superior local wool or South African wool. This combination ensures a lustrous finish that sets it apart from rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is carefully hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn, supporting the local economy in the surrounding regions of Agra.

One of the distinguishing features of the Soft Melody rug is its unique single-ply characteristic. Each knot incorporates a single thread, resulting in a thicker and denser yarn, with knots that are visibly pronounced. Combining this with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, the rug exhibits a distinctive nubbier texture and visual appeal.

The Soft Melody rugs are highly regarded 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.

Crafted with a 100% wool pile on a cotton foundation, these rugs feature tightly spun cotton warps and are predominantly double-wefted. With a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch, the textured handspun yarn creates subtle color variations, ensuring each rug has a unique aesthetic attributed to the artisanal dyeing techniques.

The longevity of these rugs is further enhanced by their coloration. The use of chromium (or chrome) dyes provides resistance to fading and ensures the vibrant hues remain intact over time. These high-quality chromium dyes, primarily sourced from Switzerland, are applied to the wool in India, combining international resources with local expertise.

The Soft Melody rug is an exquisite example of traditional Indian craftsmanship, blending tradition, innovation, and superior materials to create a rug that will grace any space with its beauty and quality.
