The Soft Melody rug from our "Soft Melody" collection is a contemporary design originating from the city of Agra, India. Handwoven by skilled artisans in their homes using traditional practices, these rugs showcase a harmonious blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation.

Crafted with a luxurious blend of imported New Zealand wool (50-75% of the blend) and either superior local wool or South African wool, the Soft Melody rug boasts a lustrous finish that sets it apart from rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn in the regions surrounding Agra, supporting the local economy.

What makes the Soft Melody rug truly unique is its single-ply characteristic. Unlike the more common two-ply yarns, each knot of this rug incorporates a single thread, resulting in a denser and substantially heavier yarn. Coupled with an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, this creates a nubbier texture with visually pronounced knots, enhancing both the tactile and visual appeal of the rug.

The Soft Melody rugs are renowned for their 6x6 quality, showcasing the intricate craftsmanship involved in their creation. With a 100% wool pile and a cotton foundation, these rugs are tightly spun and mostly double-wefted, offering a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch. The handspun nature of the yarn results in subtle color variations, enriching each rug with a unique aesthetic achieved through artisanal dyeing techniques.

To ensure longevity and color vibrancy, the Soft Melody rugs utilize chromium (or chrome) dyes. These high-quality dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland, resist fading and maintain their vibrant hues over time. The use of these dyes, combined with the craftsmanship employed in India, result in rugs that showcase exceptional coloration.

With its elegant Fair Isle design, contemporary style, and a color scheme featuring an ice background, ivory border, and grey as the main color, this Soft Melody rug measures 11'10" x 14'8". It is a stunning piece that combines modern aesthetics with traditional craftsmanship, making it a valuable addition to any space.
