Introducing the "Soft Melody" Collection, a rug quality that showcases a harmonious blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. Originating in and around Agra, India, these handwoven rugs illustrate the expertise of local artisans who have honed their skills for generations.

The Soft Melody rug stands apart with its luxurious material composition. Crafted from a blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (comprising 50-75% of the blend) and either superior local wool or South African wool, these rugs possess a lustrous finish that sets them apart. The imported New Zealand wool undergoes meticulous hand-carding and hand-spinning processes in the regions surrounding Agra, contributing to the sustainability of the local craft.

What makes the Soft Melody rugs truly unique is the incorporation of single-ply yarn. Unlike the common two-ply yarns, each knot of these rugs features a single thread, resulting in a denser, heavier yarn. This, along with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, creates a nubbier texture with pronounced knots, enhancing both the tactile and visual appeal of the rug.

Noteworthy is the 6x6 quality of the Soft Melody rugs, which demonstrates the intricate craftsmanship involved. This density adds robustness and clarity to the intricate design.

These rugs boast a 100% wool pile and are constructed with cotton foundations. The cotton warps are tightly spun, and most rugs are double-wefted, resulting in a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch. The handspun nature of the yarn ensures subtle color variations, contributing to the unique aesthetic of each rug through artisanal dyeing techniques.

The longevity and vibrancy of Soft Melody rugs are attributed to their high-quality coloration. Chromium (or chrome) dyes, renowned for their resistance to fading, are used in these rugs. Unlike inferior synthetic dyes, the chromium dyes maintain their vibrant hues over time. The wool in these rugs is dyed using these high-quality chromium dyes, which are primarily imported from Switzerland, combining international and local resources.
