Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, an exquisite rug originating from India, specifically in and around the city of Agra. These contemporary rugs showcase a design known as "illusion" and feature a platinum background with a grey border and main color.

Handwoven by skilled artisans in their homes, the Soft Melody rugs embody a perfect blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. These rugs are meticulously crafted using a combination of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (comprising 50-75% of the blend) and either superior local wool or South African wool. This unique composition ensures a luxurious and lustrous finish.

What sets these rugs apart is the single-ply characteristic of the yarn. Unlike common two-ply yarns, each knot of a Soft Melody rug incorporates a single thread, resulting in a thicker, denser, and substantially heavier yarn. This attribute, coupled with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, contributes to a distinctive nubbier texture and pronounced knots, enhancing the rug's tactile and visual appeal.

The Soft Melody rugs are renowned for their 6x6 quality, showcasing the intricacy of craftsmanship and contributing to the rug's durability and design clarity. With a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch, these rugs have a 100% wool pile and are constructed with cotton foundations, tightly spun cotton warps, and mostly double-wefted.

The exquisite coloration of these rugs is achieved through the use of chromium (or chrome) dyes. These high-quality dyes resist fading and ensure the rugs maintain their vibrant hues over time. The craftsmanship includes the application of artisanal dyeing techniques, resulting in subtle color variations that enrich the unique aesthetic of each rug.

In summary, the Soft Melody rug collection epitomizes the perfect combination of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. Its luxurious blend of imported New Zealand wool, along with impeccable weaving techniques and attention to detail, make it a true masterpiece.
