Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, this Indian rug features a traditional design known as Polonaise. The background color of the rug is charcoal, complemented by a marigold border. Made with a blend of wool on cotton, this rug is of a new type.

Measuring 9'0" x 12'5" in size, the Soft Melody rug is a product of the rich weaving tradition originating from the city of Agra, India. Handwoven by skilled artisans in their homes using centuries-old techniques, these rugs embody a perfect blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation.

The material used in this rug is a luxurious blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (50-75% of the blend) and either superior local wool or South African wool. This unique blend enhances the luster and shine of the rug compared to those made from solely local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is meticulously hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn, contributing to the local economy and ensuring the sustainability of the craft.

One exceptional feature of the Soft Melody rug is its yarn, which possesses a distinct single-ply characteristic. Each knot is formed using a single thread, resulting in a thicker, denser yarn that adds to the rug's substantial weight and visual appeal. Using an asymmetrical Persian-type knot further enhances the rug's texture, showcasing visibly pronounced knots for a unique tactile experience.

Craftsmanship plays a pivotal role in the Soft Melody rug's quality. With a density of 6x6, these rugs exhibit intricate design clarity and robustness. Constructed with a 100% wool pile and a cotton foundation, the rug boasts tightly spun cotton warps and is mostly double-wefted. The pile height measures approximately 3/8 inch, providing both comfort and durability.

The artisanal dyeing techniques used in the creation of this rug result in subtle color variations, making each piece unique. The use of high-quality chromium dyes imported from Switzerland ensures the rug's vibrancy and resists fading over time. These dyes, applied in India, encapsulate a blend of international and local resources, further contributing to the rug's superior quality and longevity.

In conclusion, the Soft Melody rug from India's Agra region combines traditional design, exceptional craftsmanship, and high-quality materials to create a visually appealing and durable piece for the discerning rug enthusiast.
