The "Soft Melody Illusion" rug originates from India, specifically in and around the city of Agra. Handwoven by local artisans in their homes, these rugs showcase a blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and innovation.

Crafted using a luxurious blend of imported, long-staple New Zealand wool (50-75% of the blend) and superior local or South African wool, the Soft Melody rug boasts a shinier and more lustrous finish compared to rugs made solely from local wools. The imported New Zealand wool is carefully hand-carded and hand-spun into yarn in the regions surrounding Agra, contributing to the sustainability of the local economy.

What sets these rugs apart is the unique single-ply characteristic of the yarn. Each knot of the Soft Melody rug is made using a single thread, resulting in a thicker, denser, and substantially heavier yarn. Combined with the use of an asymmetrical Persian-type knot, this creates a nubbier texture with pronounced knots, enhancing the rug's distinctive tactile and visual appeal.

The Soft Melody rugs are renowned for their 6x6 quality, reflecting the intricate craftsmanship involved and contributing to their robustness and intricate design clarity.

These rugs feature a 100% wool pile and are constructed with cotton foundations. Most are double-wefted and have a pile height of approximately 3/8 inch. The handspun nature of the yarn ensures subtle color variations, adding to each rug's unique aesthetic due to the artisanal dyeing techniques employed.

The coloration of these rugs is achieved using chromium (or chrome) dyes, offering resistance to fading and maintaining 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.

The Soft Melody Illusion rug measures 8'9" x 11'9", making it an ideal size for various spaces.
