Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, this rug originates from India, specifically in and around the city of Agra. Handwoven by local artisans, these rugs embrace traditional practices that have been honed over centuries.

The Soft Melody rug stands out with its luxurious blend of materials. Comprised of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (50-75% of the blend) and superior local or South African wool, this rug offers a shinier and more lustrous finish compared to those made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is carefully hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn in the regions surrounding Agra, contributing to the local economy.

What makes these rugs unique is the single-ply characteristic of the yarn. Each knot incorporates a single thread, resulting in a denser and heavier yarn. This, coupled with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, creates a nubbier texture with pronounced knots, adding to the rug's distinctive tactile and visual appeal.

Noteworthy is the 6x6 quality of the Soft Melody rugs, which showcases the intricate craftsmanship involved. This density ensures the rug's robustness and enhances the clarity of its intricate design.

Constructed with a 100% wool pile and cotton foundations, these rugs have tightly spun cotton warps and are mostly double-wefted. With a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch, the handspun yarn imparts subtle color variations, enriching each rug with a unique aesthetic achieved through artisanal dyeing techniques.

The coloration of these rugs is another aspect highlighting their quality and longevity. Employing chromium dyes, these rugs resist fading and maintain their vibrant hues over time. Unlike rugs using inferior synthetic dyes, the Soft Melody rugs utilize high-quality chromium dyes primarily imported from Switzerland. The dyeing process takes place in India, combining international and local resources.
