Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, this rug originates from India, specifically in and around the city of Agra. Handwoven by skilled artisans in their homes, these rugs embody a blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation.

The quality of the Soft Melody rug is enhanced by its luxurious material composition. It is crafted using a blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool, which makes up 50-75% of the blend, and either superior local wool or South African wool. This high-quality blend ensures a shinier and more lustrous finish compared to rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is carefully hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn in the surrounding regions of Agra, supporting the local economy.

What sets these rugs apart is the unique single-ply yarn characteristic. Unlike more common two-ply yarns, each knot of the Soft Melody rug incorporates a single thread, resulting in a thicker, denser, and heavier yarn. Combined with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, this creates a nubbier texture with visibly pronounced knots, adding to the distinct tactile and visual appeal of the rug.

The Soft Melody rugs are renowned for their 6x6 quality, reflecting the intricate craftsmanship involved and contributing to the rug's durability and intricate design clarity.

Constructed with a 100% wool pile and a cotton foundation, these rugs have tightly spun cotton warps and are mostly double-wefted. The pile height is approximately 3/8 inch, offering a plush feel underfoot. The handspun nature of the yarn results in subtle color variations, making each rug uniquely aesthetic due to artisanal dyeing techniques.

The coloration of these rugs is a key aspect of their quality and longevity. They are dyed using chromium (or chrome) dyes, which resist fading and maintain their vibrant hues over time. Unlike rugs using inferior synthetic dyes, the Soft Melody rugs employ high-quality chromium dyes primarily imported from Switzerland, combining international and local resources.
