Salma Hand-Knotted Area Rug
Our most traditional rug has timeless appeal. Knotted by hand in the mountains of Afghanistan, this beautiful area rug features three medallions at its heart, accented with nomadic shapes and motifs along its borders. Available in both rust and navy, this wool rug is truly like no other.
Each rug is made with wool that is hand-dyed, then meticulously tied with a Persian knot, with up to 80 knots per square inch. Crafted by master artisans in Afghanistan, each rug takes 4-5 months to complete. All made start-to-finish in a fair trade working environment.NOTE: Returns of rugs not delivered via white-glove will incur a $65 refund fee, due to the size of the item. Returns for store credit are always free, except for rugs delivered via white glove which will have a restocking fee of 15% applied.

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 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.
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
$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.

Great quality rug, slow to deliver
I grew up buying rugs with my family in India and seeing the range in quality first hand. This rug meets that quality in terms of the weave, color, and texture. The rug could be a little thicker. It definitely gives our living room that polished look and pulls together the existing shades of white, blue, black and grey that we already had in the space. The delivery experience was not great. For the price of the rug and white glove delivery fee, the delivery partner used was pretty terrible. Citizenry said they were transitioning to a new service provider but it took beyond the 2-4 week window that was listed online. During the delivery they did a great job in terms of placing it inside our home. Leading up to it both Citizenry and the delivery company did not communicate anything timely. The rug was delayed by several weeks even though it was listed as in stock. Then, the delivery partner did not schedule it based on my availability so it was delayed even further. Overall, glad we received it. The rug is great if you’re willing to wait over a month to get it.
