Nitara Hand-Knotted Area Rug

Easy 30 Day Returns

These aren’t your average stripes. Clean, classic, and effortlessly cool, this hand-knotted area rug turns tradition on its head by offsetting a set of vertical lines to create a wave of earth tones. Blending shades of ecru, oat, and rose clay, each rug is crafted for a soft, chunky, kick-off-your-shoes texture.

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.

Super soft, great quality

As soon as I put this rug down, my kids and my cat were lying on the floor. It's so soft, great for an area that needs some warmth or texture. It sheds a bit for a while, but I think this is normal for a rug made of natural materials.

Flawless rug

This is a stunning rug and the quality exceeded my expectations when it arrived. It's thicker and heavier than I imagined. And it feels so good to walk bare foot on. This is my 3rd rug from the Citizenry and I've never been disappointed.
