Nora Zanafi Area Rug

Easy 30 Day Returns. Unless noted as Final Sale.

Woven in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco, this Zanafi rug is handcrafted by master weavers working to preserve the ancient art and heritage of nomadic tribes in that region. Featuring the signature flat-weave, diamond pattern, and woven stripes, not only does this rug teem with craftsmanship and history — it brings an element of uncommon beauty to any space, too.

This authentic Zanafi rug has been handcrafted exclusively for The Citizenry. Each rug takes four weavers two to three weeks to complete, all made start-to-finish in a fair trade environment.

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.

  • 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.

Obsessed from afar—glad I pulled the trigger on this rug.

I love this rug in our bedroom—it feels cozy in the morning and looks romantic at night. Also happy to support the expert artisans that made it. I was tempted so get something that would deliver quickly, but am so glad I waited until this was restocked. I appreciated the email notice and was able to purchase right away.

1200.00 non returnable blanket

What a scam. No where does it say you cannot return this, rather when you read the policy it states some pieces require a fee to return. This is not a rug, it should be advertised as a blanket. A 1200.00 blanket that I cannot afford, have no use for, and am unable to return even the Citizenry never tells you you cannot return it.

Rhea, Thank you for your note, although we’re disappointed to hear this has been your experience with our Zanafi Rug. It is a flat-weave, which is a notoriously lighter construction than a standard wool rug. We’re happy to see that you’ve been in contact with our Client Experience Team to make things right — and that you’ve found a spot for our Artha Rug in your home. That’s definitely a cozy choice, and we hope you love it. If there’s anything else we can do to help, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Cheers! Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
