Presenting the "Soft Melody" rug, an exquisite piece that embodies tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. This rug originates from the region near Agra, India, where skilled artisans hand-weave it in their homes, utilizing techniques passed down for generations.

The Soft Melody rug is crafted using a luxurious blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (50-75% composition) and locally sourced or South African wool. This blend allows for a lustrous finish not typically seen in rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is carefully hand-carded and hand-spun, supporting the local economy in the surrounding areas of Agra.

Notably, this rug's yarn is a single-ply structure, setting it apart from more common two-ply yarns. This characteristic, combined with an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, results in a thicker and heavier yarn. The denser texture and pronounced knots enhance both the tactile and visual appeal of the Soft Melody rug.

The Soft Melody rugs are renowned for their 6x6 quality, which showcases the intricate craftsmanship involved and contributes to the robustness and clarity of the design.

With a 100% wool pile, this rug features a cotton foundation and tightly spun cotton warps. It is mostly double-wefted, creating a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch. The use of handspun yarn ensures subtle color variations, adding to each rug's unique aesthetic achieved through artisanal dyeing techniques.

The Soft Melody rug boasts longevity and vibrant hues due to its high-quality chromium dyes. Resistant to fading, these dyes maintain the rug's colors over time. Imported from Switzerland and applied in India, this coloration process combines international expertise with local resources.

Measuring at 9'2" x 12'3", the Soft Melody rug is an exceptional representation of Indian craftsmanship and the illustrious Khotan design. With its teal background and aqua border, this traditional-style rug will add elegance and sophistication to any space.
