Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, a stunning rug that embodies a harmonious blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. This exquisite piece originates from the region surrounding Agra, India, where skilled artisans weave these rugs by hand in their own homes, carrying on centuries-old practices.
One of the key elements of the Soft Melody rug is its luxurious material composition. Crafted primarily from imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (making up 50-75% of the blend) with the addition of superior local wool or South African wool, this rug boasts a lustrous and shiny finish. The imported New Zealand wool is carefully hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn, contributing to the local economy and promoting sustainability in the region.
What sets the Soft Melody rug apart is the unique characteristic of its single-ply yarn. Unlike the more common two-ply yarns, each knot in this rug is made with a single thread, resulting in a denser and heavier yarn. Along with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, this creates a pronounced and tactile texture, adding to the rug's visual appeal.
Known for its exceptional craftsmanship, the Soft Melody rug showcases a 6x6 quality. The intricate weaving involved in achieving this density contributes to the rug's durability and ensures the clarity of its intricate designs.
Constructed with a 100% wool pile, this rug features a cotton foundation, tightly spun cotton warps, and is primarily double-wefted. With a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch, each rug exhibits the charming variations in color that are inherent in handspun yarn, making each piece truly unique.
An essential aspect of the Soft Melody rug's quality and longevity is its use of chromium (or chrome) dyes. These dyes, mainly imported from Switzerland, provide resistance to fading and ensure the vibrant hues remain intact over time. Unlike rugs using inferior synthetic dyes, the Soft Melody rug maintains its beauty thanks to the high-quality chromium dyes applied in India, combining the best of international and local resources.
In summary, the "Soft Melody" rug is a testament to the rich traditions and craftsmanship of the artisans in and around Agra, India. With its luxurious material, unique weaving techniques, and exceptional coloration, this rug is a captivating addition to any space.
