Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, an exquisite rug originating from Agra, India. This contemporary design showcases the artistry and craftsmanship that has been perfected over centuries by local artisans.
The Soft Melody rug is meticulously handwoven using a blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (50-75% of the blend) and superior local or South African wool. This combination creates a luxurious and lustrous finish not commonly found in rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is carefully hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn by skilled artisans in the regions surrounding Agra, contributing to the local economy.
What sets this rug apart is the unique single-ply characteristic of the yarn. Each knot of the Soft Melody rug incorporates a single thread, resulting in a denser and heavier yarn. The use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot enhances the rug's texture, creating a nubbier feel with pronounced knots that add to its distinct visual and tactile appeal.
Known for its 6x6 quality, this rug exemplifies intricate craftsmanship, ensuring its durability and clarity of design. With a 100% wool pile and a cotton foundation, this rug is tightly spun and mostly double-wefted, boasting a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch. The handspun nature of the yarn introduces subtle color variations, making each rug truly unique due to the artisanal dyeing techniques involved.
Notably, the Soft Melody rug features coloration that resists fading. Chromium dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland, are employed, resulting in vibrant and long-lasting hues. Unlike rugs using inferior synthetic dyes, these rugs maintain their brilliance over time, making them a testament to quality and longevity.
Immerse yourself in the beauty and tradition of the Soft Melody collectionâ€”a stunning addition to any living space.
