Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, a rug of impeccable quality with a blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. This rug originates in and around the city of Agra, India, and is predominantly handwoven by skilled artisans in their own homes, utilizing techniques honed over centuries.

The Soft Melody rug stands out due to its luxurious material composition. It is crafted using a combination of imported long-staple New Zealand wool (comprising 50-75% of the blend) and either superior local wool or South African wool. This blend creates a lustrous finish, elevating it beyond rugs made solely with local wools. To ensure sustainability within the local economy, the imported New Zealand wool undergoes meticulous hand-carding and hand-spinning in the regions surrounding Agra.

Notably, each Soft Melody rug incorporates a unique single-ply characteristic in its yarn. Unlike more common two-ply yarns, each knot of this rug utilizes a single thread, resulting in a thicker, denser, and noticeably heavier yarn. Combined with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, this creates a distinct nubbier texture with prominently pronounced knots, adding visual and tactile appeal.

Crafted with intricate attention to detail, Soft Melody rugs possess a density of 6x6, which showcases the masterful craftsmanship involved and ensures remarkable durability and clarity in design.

Additionally, these rugs feature a pile that is 100% wool and a foundation constructed with tightly spun cotton warps. Most rugs in the Soft Melody collection are double-wefted, further enhancing their strength. With a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch, the handspun nature of the yarn introduces subtle color variations, enhancing each rug's unique aesthetic through the use of artisanal dyeing techniques.

The longevity and vibrancy of Soft Melody rugs are exemplified by their coloration. They are dyed using chromium (or chrome) dyes, which resist fading and maintain their vibrant hues over time. These high-quality chromium dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland, are expertly applied to the wool in India, combining international resources with local craftsmanship.

In conclusion, the "Soft Melody" rug from our collection offers a unique blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. It is handwoven by skilled artisans in and around Agra, India, with a blend of imported New Zealand wool and local or South African wool. The distinctive single-ply yarn and dense knotting create a nubbier texture, while the 6x6 density showcases the craftsmanship involved. With a 100% wool pile, cotton foundation, and impressive coloration using chromium dyes, this rug is a testament to quality and longevity.
