Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, an exquisite rug that embodies a harmonious blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. Originating in and around the city of Agra, India, these rugs are meticulously handwoven by artisans in their homes, showcasing the time-honored practices that have been passed down through generations.

At the heart of the Soft Melody rug lies its exceptional material composition. Combining imported New Zealand wool, with a concentration of 50-75% in the blend, along with superior local wool or South African wool, the result is a luxurious and lustrous finish that surpasses rugs made solely from local wools. The imported wool is carefully hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn in the regions surrounding Agra, contributing to the sustainability of the local craft economy.

What distinguishes these rugs is the unique single-ply characteristic of the yarn. Unlike the more common two-ply yarns, each knot of a Soft Melody rug incorporates a single thread, creating a denser and heavier yarn that contributes to a distinctive texture. The use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot further enhances the pronounced knots, giving the rug a visually and tactilely appealing quality.

Renowned for their 6x6 quality, these rugs showcase intricate craftsmanship, resulting in a robust construction and impeccable design clarity. With a 100% wool pile and cotton foundations, tightly spun cotton warps, and mostly double-wefted construction, these rugs boast a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch. The handspun nature of the yarn adds subtle color variations, enriching each rug with a unique aesthetic achieved through traditional dyeing techniques.

Ensuring longevity and enduring beauty, these rugs are dyed with chromium (or chrome) dyes that resist fading. These high-quality dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland, are applied to the wool in India, combining international expertise with local resources for vibrant and long-lasting hues.

The Soft Melody collection is a testament to the skilled artistry and rich heritage of rug weaving in the Agra region of India. With its captivating design and superior craftsmanship, this rug is a true masterpiece that will enhance any space with its timeless beauty.
