Mahika Hand-Knotted Area Rug

Easy 30 Day Returns

This is the rug you’ve been waiting for. A warm blend of oat and ecru, this hand-knotted area rug elevates any room with a bold, classic pattern that’s sure to make an impression. Crafted with a thick, luxe texture, each rug makes for a perfect neutral (and extra cozy!) addition to your space.

Each rug is hand-knotted by 14 master weavers in Bhadohi, India. From start-to-finish, each rug takes 5 full days to complete. All made in a fair trade environment.

We recommend using a RUG PAD to prevent wrinkles and slippage. Because each rug is hand-knotted with only natural materials, it is normal to see loose fibers or shedding in the first six months.

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. Items noted as White Glove will ship separately from the rest of your order, with delivery fees starting at $279 for most orders.

  • 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
    $65
    if your return includes oversized items (area rugs, furniture, mirrors)

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

So soft

New rug for our playroom and while the shag and light color might not seem like the most natural choice, I love it. It’s so soft and inviting it makes me want to sit and play with my kids more. Plus, looks great.

Super thick, beautiful color and obsessed with the look!

This rug is extra thick and wonderful quality. The color is a beautiful amber accent that's not too pink, but just right. The size is perfect, and a bit more square than traditional which worked perfectly for our room. Love this rug and would buy it again!!

Unique, soft, and beautiful

This rug exceeded my expectations - it's thick and feels plush underfoot, we didn't even feel the need to add a rug pad. The color is also lovely, more beige/neutral than the orangey tone I saw online. Overall, very happy with this item!

Love the rug and the Citizenry’s return/exchange policy

Originally bought the Salina but found the color was not as white as it appeared on screen. Fortunately the Citizenry was great about accepting a return and sending out a different rug. The Mahika is quite thick (door barely clears it) and cushy. Looks great!
