Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, a contemporary rug that showcases a blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. Originating in and around the city of Agra, India, these rugs are handwoven by skilled artisans in their homes, utilizing techniques perfected over centuries.

The Soft Melody rug is distinguished by its luxurious material, a combination of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (50-75% of the blend) and superior local or South African wool. This unique composition imparts a shinier and more lustrous finish than rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is carefully hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn, supporting the local economy.

What sets these rugs apart is their yarn's single-ply characteristic. Unlike more common two-ply yarns, each knot of a Soft Melody rug incorporates a single thread, resulting in a thicker and denser yarn. Combined with an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, this creates a nubbier texture with pronounced knots, enhancing the rug's tactile and visual appeal.

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

With a 100% wool pile and a cotton foundation, these rugs are tightly spun with cotton warps and are mostly double-wefted. The pile height measures approximately 3/8 inch, and the handspun yarn ensures subtle color variations, giving each rug a unique aesthetic. The artisanal dyeing techniques utilized result in vibrant hues that resist fading over time.

The Soft Melody collection showcases the beauty of Indian craftsmanship combined with the highest quality materials, resulting in rugs that are both visually stunning and built to last.
