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
