Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, a traditional Khotan design rug with an Indian origin. This rug features a charcoal background with a gold border, creating a visually striking contrast.
Crafted by skilled artisans in and around Agra, India, these rugs embrace centuries-old weaving practices. The Soft Melody rug is made from a luxurious blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (50-75% of the blend) and superior local or South African wool. This unique composition results in a shinier and more lustrous finish compared to rugs made solely from local wools.
The yarn used in the Soft Melody rug is meticulously hand-carded and hand-spun into a single-ply thread, giving it a thicker and denser texture. The asymmetrical Persian-type knot adds to the rug's robustness and pronounced knots, creating a distinctive tactile and visual appeal.
With a density of 6x6, these rugs showcase intricate craftsmanship, contributing to the clarity of the design. The pile is made from 100% wool, and the rug is constructed with a cotton foundation and tightly spun cotton warps. Additionally, the use of double-wefting and a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch ensures durability.
The handspun nature of the yarn introduces subtle color variations, enhancing the rug's unique aesthetic. Chromium dyes, renowned for their light-fast qualities, are used to maintain the vibrant hues over time. These high-quality dyes are primarily imported from Switzerland and applied in India, showcasing the fusion of international and local resources.
Measuring 5'0" x 7'0", the Soft Melody rug is a testament to tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation.
