Rani Flatweave Area Rug
From its architectural, blocked pattern to its neutral palette with pops of color, this flatweave area rug is a modern home must-have. The flatweave design is so intricate, with subtle color variations throughout, it's hard to believe the entire rug was crafted by hand. It’s durable, versatile, and neutral enough to add just-right panache to any room.
Each rug is handcrafted by a group of master artisans in India and, from start-to-finish, takes weeks to complete. All made in a fair trade environment.
We recommend using a rug pad to prevent wrinkles and slippage.
Also available as an accent rug.

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.
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.
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.
Always free shipping within the continental U.S.
Exchanges and returns for store credit are free.

Terrible quality control
The rug arrived and the measurements on each side were off by 6 inches. Also there were random stains all over it.
Hi Daniel, Thank you so much for your feedback — we’re truly sorry that this was your experience upon unboxing your rug. That certainly isn’t what we strive for in any shape or form! We’ve passed your notes along to our Production and Design Teams so that they may double-check with our artisan partners to ensure that everything is consistent from start to finish. I’m happy to see that our Client Experience team was able to help facilitate a return for you- and they'd be happy to help you pick out a replacement! Thank you again for your feedback. Hopefully, we’re able to prove our commitment to quality, excellence, and craftsmanship to you down the road. Best, The Citizenry Team
Nice rug, colors - but very think
The rug looks as pictured, the colors are lovely and it's well-made. It's just quite thin - like blanket consistency. Would have expected a bit more weight to it at this price.
Hi Lisa, We’re really appreciative of your feedback. While we’re thrilled to hear that you’re loving the stunning colors and craftsmanship of this rug, we’re sorry that it didn’t completely meet your expectations. The Citizenry’s rug offers are vast – from chunky, high-pile wool rugs to more streamlined flatweaves, such as the Rani Area Rug you purchased. A flatweave rug is unique in that it is handwoven on a loom, creating a much thinner, slim-line structure. We feel that this style of rug is beautiful in any room, but we absolutely understand that you may have been looking for something a bit thicker. Our Customer Experience Team will happily contact you soon to see if and how we can help. In the meantime, we thank you again for caring enough about our brand to share your thoughts! Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
Gorgeous, very white.
The Rani rug itself is fantastic - beautiful design and the feel is amazing. Unfortunately, the size we ordered was too big for our space and we realized we needed a rug that was less white as we were worried about getting it dirty. The Citizenry made it incredibly easy to return the rug and has been so kind. We will definitely be coming back for new sheets and a duvet cover in a month!
Gorgeous Rug - Gray is Slightly Off
This is probably my second adult furniture purchase that's not a hand-me-down or Ikea and I've very happy with this rug! Got the 6x9 and was super impressed by how quickly this rug shipped, and also pleasantly surprised that the wool has not shed as much as I've seen other wool rugs do in the month or so I've had it. Granted, I do not have a family and pets. Rug pad is definitely needed. Took one star off because I will note that the photos make the gray bits look even lighter than they are in person. I was expecting an even lighter blue toned gray, especially based on the 4th product photo. (I know product photography can be tricky!) I ended up with what I can vaguely describe as a mid-toned gray similar to what you'd get out of a pack of markers. It's not bad by any means and it's such a small part of the rug. I just thought that having a small hit of color would be nice in a otherwise very neutral design. Beautiful design by the way!
Love this Rug
We bought the 8x10 for our bedroom and just love the quality (no smell noticed by another commenter). The colors are true as pictured and really pulled our neutral room together.
So close to perfect
Absolutely love the design, colors and quality! The 9x12 is the right size for our room. Maybe I should have anticipated this, but the rug does have a slight barn/livestock odor if you stick your nose up to it. I’m hoping it airs out and goes away. If so, it’s a 10/10.
Hi Maria, We are thrilled to hear this rug fits so well in your home, and that you are loving the colors and design! Our artisans work hard to create beautiful pieces, and we are so happy this rug will be cherished. Each Rani Rug is made from 100% wool, so there may be a light scent that will dissipate with time. If desired, we recommend spraying a mixture of essential oils to overpower any scent since the wool will absorb the new fragrance. Additionally, we recommend keeping this beauty away from high humidity sources. Please reach out to our Client Experience team at firstname.lastname@example.org should the issue persist and we would be happy to help find a solution. Thank you again for your support — it means the world. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
