Soothing grey palette, dimensional pattern, soft under foot. If this sounds like the runner of your dreams, it’s because it totally is. Made from 100% wool, this flatweave runner brings a warm, cozy look to any hallway or kitchen.

Fair Trade. Guaranteed. 100% of our products are made with a process guaranteed by the World Fair Trade Organization.

Our rugs are handcrafted to last a lifetime, made using the highest quality natural fibers – no synthetic materials like viscose, rayon, or polyester are used.

Basic care:

Because each rug is handcrafted with only natural materials, it is normal to see loose fibers or shedding in the first six months. 


Vacuum lightly at least once a week using only low suction and no beater brush, as this may damage the rug. More frequent vacuuming will help prevent shedding.


Avoid placing rugs in prolonged direct sunlight as this can cause fading.


Rotate your rug every 3-6 months. This will help prevent excessive wear and fading in one area.


The use of a rug pad will keep your rug lying smooth and flat and will help prevent slippage.


Treating stains:

Blot spills immediately with a clean cloth - act quickly to prevent drying. Avoid harsh chemicals and household cleaners as they may damage or fade the rug. When in doubt, professional cleaning is always best.

Looks great online

Looks very different in-person vs online. Diamonds seem larger in-person and the color changes aren’t as pronounced. The weave is bumpy, and the wool is scratchy and very fibery. I ended up returning this.

Hi Jordan, Thank you for your note — it means the world to us as we continue to grow. We’re so sorry to hear that this rug did not align with your expectations when it arrived. While, yes, color variations can occur due to the natural dyes used, we want you to love everything in your home. Especially when it comes to a room-maker like this rug. We’re happy to see our team was able to assist you in returning this, and hope we can help you find rug that’s a better fit in the future! Sincerely, The Citizenry Team

Jose, We’re so sorry you not only had to wait for your Akshay Runner, but that it didn’t arrive in typical Citizenry style. While transit is often out of our control, what you experienced certainly isn’t what we strive for. We checked in with our Client Experience Team and are happy to hear that a replacement was sent your way. We’re hopeful that your runner has made itself at home nicely in your space, and that your next experience with us is a fantastic one. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team

Great rug! Just didn't fit

This rug was awesome. We wanted to keep it but the colors didn't totally match up the way we had hoped. We ended up sending it back and got a different runner.
