Introducing the Soft Melody collection, a meticulously handwoven rug originating from the city of Agra, India. These contemporary rugs showcase the perfect blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. The design of this particular rug is known as Sahara 2, featuring a slate background and a grey border. The main color of the rug is also grey, creating a modern and sophisticated look.
The Soft Melody rugs are crafted using a high-quality blend of materials. The pile is made of 100% wool, with a composition of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (50-75%) complemented by superior local wool or South African wool. This combination of fibers results in a luxurious, lustrous finish that sets these rugs apart.
One of the unique features of the Soft Melody rugs is their single-ply yarn. Unlike traditional two-ply yarns, each knot incorporates a single thread, creating a denser and heavier yarn. This, along with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, gives the rug a distinct nubby texture and pronounced knots.
The craftsmanship of these rugs is evident in their density. The Soft Melody rugs are renowned for their 6x6 quality, reflecting the intricate weaving techniques used to achieve their robustness and design clarity. The pile height of the rug is approximately 3/8 inch, adding to its plushness.
The coloration of the Soft Melody rugs is achieved using high-quality chromium dyes. These dyes resist fading and maintain their vibrant hues over time, thanks to their light-fast qualities. The wool is hand-dyed using artisanal techniques, resulting in subtle color variations that enhance the uniqueness and aesthetic of each rug.
Constructed with a cotton foundation and tightly spun cotton warps, these rugs offer durability and longevity. Most of them are double-wefted, further enhancing their strength.
The Soft Melody collection offers a truly exceptional rug with its blend of traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design. With its high-quality materials, luxurious finish, and intricate weaving, this rug is a testament to the skill and artistry of the artisans from Agra, India.
