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 and hand-trimmed to the desired pile height, 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.

  • Most in-stock items will ship via FedEx Ground in 7-10 business days unless otherwise noted.

  • Exchanges and returns for store credit are free.

    Prefer a refund? A single re-stocking fee will apply to returns within 30 days:
    $0 (no fee) for just bedding and/or towels
    $25 for most other returned orders
    if your return includes oversized items (area rugs, furniture, mirrors)

    White glove delivery items are handled separately and have a 15% re-stocking fee.

Nonstop shedding

Overall this is a beautiful rug! I have to warn you that it looks different than the picture (the stripes are more visible). I love how soft it is, but hate how much it sheds! A little bit of shedding is to be expected, especially at the beginning, but I’ve had my rug for 6 months now and it still sheds a ton. It’s not holding up like I expected.

Colors not what I saw in photos

I love the texture and quality of this rug. I saw the color as more varied and unique than it is. It is elegant but also safe and neutral. It is beige with black stripes that come through irregularly.

The color is brown way to dark. Terrible photo, not pleased at all, could you have possibly sent me the wrong rug?


The Citizenry

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. I’m happy to see that our Client Experience team was able to help find a solution for you. Thank you again for your feedback. Hopefully, we’re able to prove our commitment to quality, excellence, and craftsmanship to you down the road. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team

Best neutral rug as is (or as layering rug) of all time!!

The Artha striped area rug is hands down the best neutral rug I’ve tried. We have the 9x12 which is perfect for adding an 8x10 or 6x9 on top. Extremely comfortable underfoot and over all very well made. You can tell by the texture and weight that the quality is there. The color, I would say, is a warmer cream/beige. If you’re thinking about getting it, this is your sign to not question yourself anymore about it, and go for it. Hands down one of the best rugs out there!
