Introducing the "Soft Melody" collection, this contemporary rug showcases a unique blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation. Originating from the outskirts of Agra, India, artisans handweave these rugs in their homes, utilizing techniques refined over centuries.

The quality of the Soft Melody rug begins with its luxurious material. A combination of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (making up 50-75% of the blend) and superior local or South African wool ensures a glossy and lustrous finish that surpasses rugs crafted solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is meticulously hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn within the regions surrounding Agra, promoting local economic sustainability.

What sets these rugs apart is the unique single-ply characteristic of the yarn. Unlike the more common two-ply yarns, each knot in a Soft Melody rug incorporates a single thread, resulting in a thicker, denser, and notably heavier yarn. This, along with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, creates a textured and visually striking rug with prominent knots, adding to its distinct tactile appeal.

The Soft Melody rugs are highly regarded for their 6x6 quality, a testament to the intricate craftsmanship involved. This density contributes to the rug's durability and enhances the clarity of its intricate design.

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

Notably, the vibrant and long-lasting colors of these rugs are achieved through the use of high-quality chromium dyes. Resistant to fading and boasting light-fast qualities, these rugs maintain their hues over time, unlike rugs dyed with inferior synthetic dyes. The chromium dyes primarily imported from Switzerland are applied to the wool in India, combining international expertise with local resources.

Measuring 8 '10" X 12'0 ", this Soft Melody rug perfectly exemplifies the fusion of traditional craftsmanship with contemporary design. Its silver background and blue border add a touch of elegance to the overall modern aesthetic, making it a splendid addition to any space.
