Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, this Indian rug features a transitional design with an ikat pattern. The background color is rust, complemented by a camel border. The main color of the rug is red, creating a vibrant and visually appealing piece.
Crafted with care and expertise, these rugs originate in northern India and are predominantly handwoven by skilled artisans in their homes. The material used is a blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (making up 50-75% of the blend) and South African wool. This combination results in a luxurious feel and a lustrous appearance, surpassing rugs made solely from local wools. The New Zealand wool is meticulously hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn in the regions surrounding Agra, contributing to the sustainability of the local craft.
Unlike common two-ply yarns, the yarn in the Soft Melody rug collection features a unique single-ply characteristic. Each knot incorporates a single thread, resulting in a thicker, denser, and heavier yarn. This, combined with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, gives the rug a distinctive nubbier texture and pronounced knots, enhancing both the tactile and visual allure.
These rugs have a weave quality of 6x6 and a 100% wool pile. They are constructed with a cotton warp and weft foundation, ensuring durability and stability. The unique construction utilizes a single 1/8 inch thick cotton weft, which gets packed down to create a denser and more securely knotted rug, minimizing shifting and ensuring longevity.
Thanks to the handspun nature of the yarn and the use of artisanal dyeing techniques, each Soft Melody rug possesses subtle color variations, lending a unique aesthetic to each piece. To maintain vibrant hues over time, chromium (or chrome) dyes are employed during the dyeing process. These high-quality dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland, resist fading and boast light-fast qualities, ensuring long-lasting beauty.
With its rich design, exceptional craftsmanship, and high-quality materials, the Soft Melody rug is a stunning addition to any space. Measuring 13'10" x 21'8", this new rug crafted with wool on cotton is sure to make a statement in your home or office.
