Great - if you never walk on it! When we first bought this, we were in love with the way this rug looks and feels, but it stains INSTANTLY. Most runners are a little more durable as they're usually in high traffic areas, but not this one. Looks disheveled and worn after a day with dirt, stains, you name it. Unless you're putting it in a room that is never used and has no foot traffic, I can't see any circumstance this rug would keep clean. It's gotten to the point where we keep it in the closet and only put it out when guests come over. After they leave we throw it in the wash (thankfully it does wash well) and put it back in the closet. Disappointed that we have to do that, but it gets filthy instantly. Such a shame. It also doesn't stick great to the runner mat, which is EXACTLY the same size so it's always peeking out and doesn't lay perfectly flush, so we trip on it constantly. UGH.

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.
