Introducing the "Soft Melody" rug from our collection, a contemporary design inspired by the Sahara. This rug originates from India, specifically the regions surrounding Agra. Handwoven by skilled artisans in their homes, these rugs embody a blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation that has been refined over centuries.

The Soft Melody rug stands out with its luxurious blend of materials. It features imported, long-staple New Zealand wool, comprising 50-75% of the blend, combined with superior local 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 hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn, supporting the local economy and ensuring sustainability.

What distinguishes these rugs is the use of single-ply yarn. Each knot incorporates a single thread, creating a thicker, denser, and heavier yarn. The asymmetrical Persian-type knot further enhances the density and texture of the rug, with pronounced knots adding to its distinctive tactile and visual appeal.

The Soft Melody rugs are renowned for their 6x6 quality, reflecting 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 mostly double-wefted. With a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch, they offer a comfortable and luxurious texture. The handspun nature of the yarn results in subtle color variations, giving each rug a unique aesthetic achieved through artisanal dyeing techniques.

Durability and vibrancy are key aspects of these rugs' coloration. The use of chromium dyes ensures their resistance to fading, maintaining their vibrant hues over time. Unlike rugs using inferior synthetic dyes, these high-quality chromium dyes, primarily imported from Switzerland, are applied to the wool in India, combining international and local resources.

The Soft Melody rug is a testament to the rich heritage of Indian rug production, showcasing the expertise of the artisans and the highest quality materials. Its contemporary design, inspired by the Sahara, adds a touch of sophistication and elegance to any space.
