Made with higher standards. We preserve artisan craft by paying wages that average 2x the fair trade requirement.

All our rugs are made from the finest natural materials. We choose pure cotton or sheep's wool, dye it carefully, and weave it for strength. Following these suggestions will ensure your rugs can be treasured for a lifetime.

Basic care:

Vacuum rugs lightly and avoid direct and prolonged sunlight exposure.

Small cotton rugs may be washed gently and hung to dry.

Treating stains:

If the stain was caused by liquid, act quickly to prevent from drying – use paper towels to absorb.

When in doubt, professional dry cleaning is always going to be your best bet. If you do decide to take matters into your own hands, a few tips for you:

  • For wine, coffee, or tea, apply a solution of warm water, detergent and white vinegar with a damp sponge. Wipe with clean cloth and let dry.
  • For oil, chocolate, lipstick, nail polish, or ink, scrub or scrape the stained area first. Then apply a solution of hot water and detergent with a clean cloth to absorb as much of the stain as possible. If required, leave the wet cloth overnight before wiping with a clean cloth to dry.

  • Always free shipping within the continental U.S.

  • Exchanges and returns for store credit are free.

    Prefer a refund? A single re-stocking fee will apply:
    $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)

    Easy returns within 30 days of delivery.

Received Rug covered with Black Mold/ Nonresponsive Customer Service

This experience has been awful so far. I received the Shiva Dhurrie Rug with order #92306 and I opened the box to atrocious smells with the rug covered in black mold. I called customer service to have a new one sent and provided photos. They gave me a difficult time about sending FedEx to pickup the rug and send a new one. Finally, they confirmed FedEx would come back and pick up the damaged, moldy rug. I was told over two weeks ago a new one would be sent out. I have heard nothing. I have emailed three times and left two voicemails over the past two weeks to find out the status, with no response at all. They haven't refunded me either. This has been a horrible experience for a rug with such a hefty price tag. I will have to call American Express to file a dispute due to nonresponse.

The Citizenry

Hi Danielle, We are so sorry to hear about your less than stellar experience - that is certainly not what we are striving for. We took a look at your order, and it shows you have been in contact with our client experience team and have been sent a replacement. However, this feedback is so very helpful. We also want to apologize for the delayed response. We are a small team and it took a bit longer than anticipated to catch up after the holidays. Thank you for caring enough about our brand to let us know about the issue so we could work to make it right. Please reach out to us at if there is anything further we can do, we are always happy to help! Best, The Citizenry Team

This is a beautiful rug, with rich color.

The photos on the website are accurate, but cannot really capture how rich the color is. I bought this runner for the entrance to the cottage I recently purchased, which has dark (and dreary, to me at least) laminate floors that someday I'll replace. The rug instantly brightened the space. It also seems very well made.

Gorgeous and totally worth the price!

The runner is soft, the color is to die for, and the design is the perfect accent to our hallway. The Citizenry doesn’t disappoint!

Beautiful, Stains Easily

We have this in the kitchen and it is beautiful. Unlike the wool rugs that are super durable, this is a thinner cotton rug so we saw stains basically after 3 days. All good though, because it's thin and cotton and we plan on throwing it in the washer! Haven't done it yet but hoping that'll fix it right up.
