Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, a stunning rug that combines tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. This particular rug originates from India, specifically from and around the city of Agra. Handwoven by skilled artisans in their own homes, these rugs embrace time-honored practices that have been perfected over centuries.

The Soft Melody rug's quality is enhanced by its luxurious material. It is made from a blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (comprising 50-75% of the blend) and superior local or South African wool. This combination results in a shinier, more lustrous finish compared to rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is carefully hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn, supporting the local economy in the regions surrounding Agra.

What sets these rugs apart is the unique single-ply characteristic of the yarn. Each knot in a Soft Melody rug incorporates a single thread, creating a thicker, denser, and heavier yarn. The use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot further contributes to a dense and nubbier texture, with knots that are visibly pronounced. This adds to the rug's distinctive tactile and visual appeal.

Renowned for their 6x6 quality, these rugs exhibit intricate craftsmanship and bring clarity to the intricate designs. They feature a 100% wool pile and are constructed with cotton foundations, tightly spun cotton warps, and mostly double-wefted. With a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch, these rugs showcase the handspun nature of the yarn, resulting in subtle color variations that enhance each rug's unique aesthetic. Artisanal dyeing techniques are utilized in the creation process.

The coloration of these rugs is another aspect of their high quality and longevity. Chromium (or chrome) dyes are employed, offering resistance to fading and ensuring the vibrant hues maintain their brilliance over time. Unlike rugs using inferior synthetic dyes, these rugs utilize high-quality chromium dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland. This combination of international and local resources results in rugs that stand the test of time.

With its captivating design and impeccable craftsmanship, the Soft Melody rug from Agra, India, is a luxurious addition to any home. Its blend of traditional elements and innovative techniques makes it a truly remarkable piece.
