Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, a rug of exquisite craftsmanship and innovation, originating in the vicinity of Agra, India. Handwoven by skilled artisans in their homes, these rugs embody centuries-old traditions.

The hallmark of the Soft Melody rug lies in its material composition. It is crafted using a luxurious blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (comprising 50-75% of the blend) and either superior local wool or South African wool. This combination creates a glossy and lustrous finish that surpasses rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is carefully hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn in the regions surrounding Agra, promoting local economic sustainability.

What distinguishes these rugs further is the unique single-ply characteristic of the yarn. Unlike the more common two-ply yarns, each knot in a Soft Melody rug incorporates a single thread, resulting in a thicker and denser yarn. This, along with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, adds to the rug's distinctive texture with visibly pronounced knots, offering a captivating tactile and visual experience.

Renowned for their 6x6 quality, Soft Melody rugs showcase outstanding craftsmanship and intricate design clarity. With a 100% wool pile and cotton foundations, these rugs are constructed with tightly spun cotton warps and are mostly double-wefted. The pile height measures approximately 3/8 inch, providing a plush feel underfoot. The handspun nature of the yarn ensures subtle color variations, imbuing each rug with a unique aesthetic achieved through artisanal dyeing techniques.

An important factor contributing to the quality and longevity of these rugs is their coloration. Utilizing chromium (or chrome) dyes, these rugs resist fading and boast light-fast qualities, maintaining their vibrant hues over time. Superior to inferior synthetic dyes, the high-quality chromium dyes are primarily imported from Switzerland and are skillfully applied to the wool in India, embodying a harmonious marriage of international and local resources.

This Soft Melody rug with a lyric design showcases a silver background and a grey border, making it an enchanting addition to any transitional-style space. With dimensions of 8'0" x 10'3", this rug is a captivating centerpiece that combines timeless artistry with contemporary elegance.
