Introducing the Soft Melody collection, a masterpiece of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. This rug originates from Agra, India, where skilled artisans handweave these rugs in their homes using techniques passed down through the ages. The Soft Melody rug features a luxurious blend of imported New Zealand wool, comprising 50-75% of the material, and either superior local wool or South African wool. This blend results in a lustrous finish not found in rugs made solely from local wools.
What sets the Soft Melody rug apart is its unique single-ply characteristic. Each knot incorporates a single thread, creating a thicker, denser, and heavier yarn. The use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot further enhances the rug's texture, with knots that are visibly pronounced, adding to its distinct tactile and visual appeal.
The Soft Melody rug is renowned for its 6x6 quality, a reflection of the intricate craftsmanship involved. This density contributes to the rug's robustness and intricate design clarity. It features a 100% wool pile and a cotton foundation, with tightly spun cotton warps. Most rugs in this collection are double-wefted and have a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch.
The yarn used in these rugs is handspun, resulting in subtle color variations that enrich each rug with a unique aesthetic. The artisanal dyeing techniques used in India, with high-quality chromium dyes primarily imported from Switzerland, ensure that the rug resists fading and maintains its vibrant hues over time.
Experience the artistry and quality of the Soft Melody rug, a testament to India's rich rug-making heritage.
