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.

Fabulous Lalita

The Citizenry's Lalita area rug is beautiful, soft, and comfortable. The color is more cream than ecru - blends well with most room colors. Ridges are not quite as easy on bare feet as a solid pile, but the appealing swirl pattern makes the somewhat uneven surface worth it. The size turned out to be too big for my bedroom. Tried the living room. Fits perfectly, looks great. Good to know that The Citizenry sources its rugs responsibly.

Great rug, but shipping method creates issues

The rug is just as pictured and is incredibly soft. It feels great under my feet. My only problem is that it shipped folded rather than rolled, and it arrived with very visible creases. I’ve tried several methods of removing the creases (ironing, steaming, letting it test for a couple weeks) and still they’re visible. I’ve never had this experience with a rug and probably wouldn’t have purchased if I knew it would be an issue. Have had a number of great purchases from The Citizenry over the years but this one was a bit disappointing.


The Citizenry

Hi Emily, Thank you for your thoughtful feedback. Many of our rugs are shipped folded to optimize shipping costs and sustainability for our Artisans. However, we are so sorry to hear this lessened your overall experience and detracted from this gorgeous rug! We are passing your feedback to our team so we can re-evaluate going forward, and in the meantime, our Client Experience team will follow up with you to ensure this beauty is as close to perfect as possible. We know this was an investment and we want you to love it for years to come as a modern heirloom. We are so sorry we let you down, and hope we can make it up to you, down the road. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team

Gorgeous and So Well Made

Absolutely gorgeous rug and so well made. It's thick and plush, and truly perfect. I'm just so sad the ecru doesn't work with my decor, I would kill for this in a Navy or Olive.

Thick and plush

This rug is so thick and beautiful. Its simple style amps up the luxurious quality and beautiful design. It’s always out of stock probably for a reason.
