Introducing the "Soft Melody" Indian Rug, designed by Kathleen George, a contemporary masterpiece that showcases the fusion of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. With an origin rooted in and around the city of Agra, India, these handwoven rugs are meticulously crafted by skilled artisans in their homes, utilizing techniques passed down through generations.

Crafted with a blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (comprising 50-75% of the blend) along with superior local or South African wool, the Soft Melody rug stands apart with its luxurious and lustrous finish. The imported New Zealand wool is carefully hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn, supporting the local economy and ensuring exceptional quality.

Noteworthy is the unique single-ply characteristic of the yarn used in these rugs. Unlike the more common two-ply yarns, each knot incorporates a single thread, resulting in a denser and heavier yarn. With an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, the Soft Melody rug boasts a distinctive nubbier texture with pronounced knots, enhancing its tactile and visual appeal.

Renowned for their 6x6 quality, these rugs showcase the intricate craftsmanship involved, offering robustness and precise design clarity. Featuring a 100% wool pile and a cotton foundation, tightly spun cotton warps, and mostly double-wefted construction, these rugs have a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch. The handspun nature of the yarn creates subtle color variations, imparting a unique aesthetic through artisanal dyeing techniques.

Designed to resist fading and maintain vibrant hues over time, these rugs employ high-quality chromium dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland. The use of chromium dyes ensures long-lasting colorfastness, setting them apart from rugs dyed with inferior synthetic dyes.

Indulge in the exquisite craftsmanship, rich materials, and timeless design of the Soft Melody Indian Rug.
