Shayak Jute Area Rug

Free U.S. Shipping & Easy Returns

Bold design. Natural style. Dried jute fibers are spun together to create the bold horizontal stripes of this seamless area rug. A bit heavier than traditional jute rugs, this durable option is a great choice for high-traffic areas in your home. Not to mention it's easy on the eyes.

Handwoven by a collective of 200 weavers in Panipat, one of India's historic hubs for rug making, each one takes days to complete. Every rug is Oeko-Tex® certified and made sustainably in a fair trade environment.

We recommend using a RUG PAD to prevent wrinkles and slippage.

Also available as an ACCENT RUG and RUNNER.

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 weekly 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:

For jute rugs, do not use liquids for stain treatment – liquids will damage and discolor the natural fibers. Instead, use a dry rug shampoo or baking soda. Sprinkle the dry shampoo on the rug and allow it to sit for a couple of hours. Vacuum up the dry shampoo and flip the rug over to repeat on the other side. When in doubt, professional cleaning is always best.


  • Always free shipping within the continental U.S.

  • Exchanges and returns for store credit are free.

Shayak rug - I was hopeful but disappointed

This rug looks nice at first but it’s very thick so we trip on it a lot and the bigger problem is that it started fraying immediately!

The Citizenry

Hi Tasha, Thank you for sharing your concerns with us – we truly appreciate your feedback! We’re so sorry to hear that your beautiful Shayak Area Rug has given you some trouble. Because these beauties are hand-knotted and made with 100% Jute (a natural fiber) some minor shedding or unraveling isn’t uncommon during the first few months. I’m happy to see that someone from our Client Experience Team was able to connect with you to provide some care tips and suggestions and that we were also able to offer an extra incentive to make things work! If there’s anything else we might be able to help you with, please don’t hesitate to contact us at assistant@the-citizenry.com! Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
