Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, a rug of exceptional quality that embodies tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. This particular rug originates from India, specifically in and around the city of Agra.

Handwoven by skilled artisans in their homes, these rugs showcase the time-honored techniques that have been perfected over centuries. The material used in the "Soft Melody" rug is a blend of luxurious imported New Zealand wool (comprising 50-75% of the blend) and either superior local wool or South African wool. This unique composition results in a shiny and lustrous finish, setting it apart from rugs made solely from local wools.

The yarn used in the "Soft Melody" rug possesses a distinctive feature – it is a single-ply yarn. Unlike the more common two-ply yarns, each knot incorporates a single thread, creating a thicker and denser yarn. The use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot adds to the rug's tactile and visual appeal, resulting in a denser and nubbier texture with pronounced knots.

Crafted with precision, these rugs possess a density of 6x6, showcasing the intricate craftsmanship involved and enhancing the clarity of the design. The pile of the rug is made from 100% wool, while the foundations are constructed with cotton. Tightly spun cotton warps and mostly double-wefted construction contribute to the rug's durability. Additionally, the pile height measures approximately 3/8 inch.

The handspun nature of the yarn introduces subtle color variations, giving each rug a unique aesthetic. The artisanal dyeing techniques used in the rug's production ensure vibrant and long-lasting colors. The application of chromium dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland, brings forth light-fast qualities, preventing the colors from fading over time.

In conclusion, the "Soft Melody" rug embodies the rich heritage of Indian rug making, combining traditional craftsmanship with innovative materials. Its luxurious blend of New Zealand wool, dense texture, and vibrant colors make it a delightful addition to any interior space.
