The Citizenry works with artisans across the globe to create beautiful, long-lasting products. Wool pillows from Peru use 100% sheep wool and 100% cotton for a new cozy edition to your couch or bed, while their hand-loomed pillows from India use 100% linen for a light, springy update to your home. Many of their rugs are crafted in Northern Argentina, one of the most impoverished areas of the country. Of the artisans they work with, 80% are women, and all are masters of traditional techniques like hand-spinning wool, dyeing with natural pigments, and hand looming.

As an added bonus, The Citizenry gives back proceeds to all of their artisans to build their communities and allow them to continue crafting what they love.

The Citizenry Maravi Wall Hangings
Go global with these stunning palm wall hangings, meticulously handwoven in Malawi. Sculptural and a true work of art. That’s how we would describe these statement wall hangings. Each one is handwoven with a weave so intricate, you have to see it up close – and once you do, you’ll notice that the weave is intentionally deconstructed in such a way that the natural palm takes center stage (we meant it when we said they’re art). Available in two sizes: medium and large. These wall hangings look great on their own but even better in a set of two. Mix and match sizes to create your own custom look. Meticulously created and handwoven by artisans in Malawi, each wall hanging takes up to five days to complete. All made start-to-finish in a fair trade environment. Photo Courtesy of The Citizenry
