Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, a new Indian rug featuring a traditional Khotan design. This exquisite rug has a light blue background and a navy border, with the main color being blue. Made from a combination of wool on cotton, it measures 8'2" x 10'6".

Originating in and around the city of Agra, India, these rugs are handwoven by skilled artisans who follow practices that have been refined over centuries. The Soft Melody rug is crafted using a luxurious blend of imported New Zealand wool and superior local or South African wool. The hand-carding and hand-spinning process in the regions surrounding Agra results in a shinier and more lustrous finish.

What makes these rugs truly exceptional is the unique single-ply characteristic of the yarn. Unlike the more common two-ply yarn, each knot of a Soft Melody rug incorporates a single thread. This creates a denser and thicker yarn, giving the rug a nubbier texture and visible knots that enhance its tactile and visual appeal. The rugs are known for their 6x6 quality, which showcases the intricate craftsmanship involved and contributes to the rug's durability and design clarity.

The Soft Melody rugs have a 100% wool pile and a cotton foundation, with tightly spun cotton warps. They are mostly double-wefted and have a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch. The handspun nature of the yarn adds subtle color variations, making each rug unique due to the artisanal dyeing techniques employed.

To ensure long-lasting color, these rugs are dyed with high-quality chromium (chrome) dyes. Unlike rugs that use inferior synthetic dyes, the Soft Melody rugs resist fading and maintain their vibrant hues over time. The chromium dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland, are skillfully applied to the wool in India, combining international and local resources.

The Soft Melody rug is a testament to tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. Its exceptional quality and unique design make it a stunning addition to any space.
