Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, a contemporary rug design that showcases a blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. This particular rug hails from India, specifically the city of Agra and its surrounding areas. Skilled artisans handweave these rugs in their homes, employing techniques that have been perfected over centuries.

Crafted from a luxurious blend of imported New Zealand wool (50-75% of the blend) and superior local or South African wool, the Soft Melody rug boasts a shiny, lustrous finish not typically seen in rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool undergoes meticulous hand-carding and hand-spinning in the regions surrounding Agra, contributing to the local economy.

What sets these rugs apart is the unique single-ply characteristic of the yarn. Unlike common two-ply yarns, each knot in a Soft Melody rug incorporates a single thread, resulting in a thicker, denser, and heavier yarn. Along with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, this creates a distinct texture with pronounced knots, enhancing both the tactile and visual appeal of the rug.

The Soft Melody rugs are renowned for their 6x6 quality, a testament to the intricate craftsmanship involved. This density ensures the rug's robustness and allows for intricate design clarity.

Constructed with a 100% wool pile and cotton foundations, these rugs feature tightly spun cotton warps and are mostly double-wefted. The pile height measures approximately 3/8 inch, providing a plush feel underfoot. The handspun nature of the yarn results in subtle color variations, giving each rug a unique aesthetic achieved through artisanal dyeing techniques.

Longevity and color retention are key features of these rugs. Chromium (or chrome) dyes are used in the coloration process, ensuring resistance to fading and maintaining vibrant hues over time. These high-quality chromium dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland, are applied to the wool in India, combining international resources with local craftsmanship.

Impressively sized at 2 '7 " x 8 '1 ", this Soft Melody rug in a contemporary illusion design showcases a beautiful blue background with a navy border, offering a striking centerpiece for any space.
