Akshay Area Rug

Free U.S. Shipping & Easy Returns

Soothing grey palette, dimensional pattern, soft under foot. If this sounds like the rug of your dreams, it’s because it totally is. Handwoven from 100% wool, this neutral rug adds a cozy layer to your space while packing quite the textured punch. Perfect for styling in a living area or bedroom, it begs for you to kick off your shoes and make yourself at home.

This rug is handwoven by master artisans in Panipat, India. From start-to-finish, each one takes up to five weeks to complete, all made in a fair trade environment.

We recommend using a rug pad to reduce wrinkles and slippage.

This beauty is also available as a flatweave runner.

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.


  • Always free shipping within the continental U.S.

  • Exchanges and returns for store credit are free.

    $0 (no fee) for just bedding and/or towels
    $25 for most other returned orders

Stylish rug

I bought this rug after I installed hardwood floors in my bedroom. It looks even prettier than in the pictures with its two shades of grey and it adds a lot of style to the room . It is also very well made and I love stepping on it.

Sturdy, beautiful neutral rug! The natural wool tufts add a gorgeous textural component and feel great underfoot as well.

Even more beautiful in person!

I had been eying this Akshay Area Rug for about 8 months, and finally decided I couldn't live without it any more. When it arrived I was completely tickled to learn that the rug is even more beautiful in person then it was online! I am so happy with this purchase. The quality of the weaving is excellent. The texture of the rug is wonderful. The rug was also very true to size. My husband and I are using it as the area rug for our bedroom, and love stepping out of bed every morning onto this soft and forgiving surface. This rug has also been very easy to keep clean.
