Introducing the Soft Melody collection, a contemporary rug with an intriguing design known as Illusion. This exquisite rug originates from India, particularly the city of Agra and its surrounding regions. Handwoven by skilled artisans in their homes, these rugs reflect a harmonious blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation.
The Soft Melody rug is crafted using a luxurious blend 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 lustrous finish, adding to the rug's allure. The imported New Zealand wool is meticulously hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn, supporting the local economy in the regions surrounding Agra.
What sets this rug apart is its yarn, which incorporates a single thread in each knot instead of the more common two-ply yarns. This results in a thicker, denser, and weightier yarn, enhancing the rug's texture and visual appeal. To further contribute to its distinctiveness, the Soft Melody rug employs an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, creating pronounced knots and a nubbier texture.
The Soft Melody rug boasts a density of 6x6, showcasing the intricate craftsmanship involved in its creation. This density enhances the rug's durability and ensures clarity in its intricate design.
Constructed with a 100% wool pile and a cotton foundation, this rug also features tightly spun cotton warps and is mostly double-wefted. With a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch, the Soft Melody rug offers a comfortable and plush feel underfoot. Additionally, the use of handspun yarn results in subtle color variations, adding to the rug's unique aesthetic, which is further enhanced by the artisanal dyeing techniques.
To ensure long-lasting vibrancy, the Soft Melody rug utilizes chromium dyes known for their resistance to fading. These high-quality dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland, are applied to the wool in India, combining international expertise with local resources.
Indulge in the allure of this contemporary Soft Melody rug, with its fascinating design, skillful craftsmanship, and high-quality materials. Add a touch of sophistication to your space with this stunning piece that seamlessly blends tradition and innovation.
