Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection in rug quality, which showcases a distinct combination of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. These rugs originate from the region in and around Agra, India, where skilled artisans hand-weave them in their homes using techniques honed over centuries.

One of the defining features of the Soft Melody rug is its luxurious material. It is crafted using a blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (comprising 50-75% of the blend) and either superior local wool or South African wool. This unique composition results in a shinier and more lustrous finish compared to rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is meticulously hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn, supporting the local economy.

What sets the Soft Melody rugs apart is the yarn's single-ply characteristic. Unlike the more common two-ply yarns, each knot in these rugs incorporates a single thread, creating a thicker and denser yarn. The use of asymmetrical Persian-type knots further enhances the rug's distinctive texture, with pronounced knots that add to its tactile and visual appeal.

These rugs are renowned for their 6x6 quality, which reflects the intricate craftsmanship involved and contributes to their durability and design clarity. They feature a 100% wool pile and are constructed with cotton foundations, tightly spun cotton warps, and mostly double-wefted construction. The pile height is approximately 3/8 inch. The handspun nature of the yarn results in subtle color variations, giving each rug a unique aesthetic due to artisanal dyeing techniques.

Another important aspect of these rugs is their coloration. The use of chromium dyes ensures resistance to fading and light-fastness, allowing the rugs to maintain their vibrant hues over time. These high-quality chromium dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland, are applied to the wool in India, combining international and local resources.

With its rich history, quality craftsmanship, and thoughtful design, the Soft Melody rug is a unique addition to any contemporary space.
