Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, a contemporary rug originating from the city of Agra, India. Handwoven by skilled artisans in their homes, these rugs embody a blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation.
The key feature of the Soft Melody rug lies in its luxurious material composition. Made from a combination of imported New Zealand wool, comprising 50-75% of the blend, and superior local or South African wool, this rug presents a shinier and more lustrous finish compared to rugs made solely from local wools. The imported wool is meticulously hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn, further contributing to the local economy.
What sets these rugs apart is the unique single-ply characteristic of the yarn. Unlike the common two-ply yarns, each knot of a Soft Melody rug incorporates a single thread, resulting in a denser and substantially heavier yarn. The use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot enhances the rug's tactile and visual appeal, creating a denser and nubbier texture with pronounced knots.
The Soft Melody rugs boast a 6x6 quality, indicating intricate craftsmanship and design clarity. With a 100% wool pile and a cotton foundation, these rugs are tightly spun with double-wefted construction. The pile height measures approximately 3/8 inch, providing a comfortable and plush feel. Due to the handspun nature of the yarn, subtle color variations enrich each rug, showcasing the artisanal dyeing techniques employed.
To ensure longevity and vibrant hues, these rugs utilize chromium (or chrome) dyes. Resistant to fading, these high-quality dyes maintain their vivid colors over time. Imported from Switzerland and applied in India, the use of these dyes combines international and local resources.
In summary, the Soft Melody collection of rugs embodies a rich tradition of craftsmanship and innovation. Made from a luxurious blend of imported New Zealand wool and locally sourced wool, these rugs offer a shinier and lustrous finish. With their unique single-ply characteristic and asymmetrical Persian-type knot, these rugs present a dense and tactile texture. The 6x6 quality showcases intricate craftsmanship and design clarity. Constructed with cotton foundations and boasting vibrant hues from chromium dyes, the Soft Melody rugs are a testament to quality and longevity.
