Bandera Handwoven Area Rug

Easy 30 Day Returns

Featuring an of-the-moment palette of moody, saturated hues, this area rug can’t help but turn heads. Handwoven with locally sourced sheep’s wool, master weavers use plants, berries, and bugs (yes, bugs!) to create these brilliant shades.

Each one takes almost three weeks to complete. All made start-to-finish by a fair trade cooperative in Oaxaca. 

We recommend using with a rug pad to avoid slippage.

Also available as an accent rug or runner

NOTE: Due to the size of this item, returns for a refund require a $65 total fee. Returns for store credit are always free.

Love the rug but shipped incorrectly, creases won’t relax

We have our 6x9 area rug in the dining room. It’s a beautiful rug, well made, and so annoying and unfortunate that it arrived folded instead of rolled. At this price point i expect better. It’s been out for weeks now and the creases are not budging. It shouldn’t take effort to relax a brand new expensive rug.

Hi Emily, Thanks for taking the time to share this feedback. We are sorry to hear that your initial experience with your rug could've been better. For some of our rug styles - we have found this method to be the most sustainable way to transport these beauties, however, we do apologize for any added inconvenience here. We will most certainly pass your feedback along so we can re-work this going forward. We're happy to see our Client Experience team was able to provide some helpful suggestions and if there is anything else we can do in the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out. Best, The Citizenry Team

Dream Rug!

We love our Bandera Rug! We’ve had our eye on it for quite some time, and we couldn’t be happier with our purchase. The colors are rich, and the size is perfect. It's a great addition to our dining area.

Gorgeous colors

This rug has beautiful colors. It cleans easily and relaxed very quickly (for those concerned about creases). Looks amazing!

This rug has stunning colors but it will not lay flat.

I love the general look of this rug. Sadly the corners curl up and there is a huge ridge that Kees forming in the center because the weaving is not quite even. I am trying to figure out how to get it to lay flat. I put some of those corner things on it but they are not completely working. I will try another kind. I’m really not sure how to get the ridge to go go flat and stay that way. I want to love it but I’m a little sad about how it’s turning out functionally. For the price it’s pretty frustrating.

Hi Hannah, We're so sorry to hear that you are having issues with your rug. All of our rugs are made from the finest natural materials. Each piece is carefully dyed and woven for strength and durability. These should relax over time or if you place some heavy items on the areas that are creased. If you want to speed up the process, you can use a low-heat iron to help encourage them to relax. You'll want to place a towel between the rugs and the iron, and be sure to use low-medium heat to help! Our Client Experience team would love to assist you further, so feel free to reach out to anytime! Best, The Citizenry Team

Love it!

I grew up in the Southwest of Colorado. My Grandparents home was filled with beautiful Indian rugs they purchased living in and around New Mexico. I have one of them featuring Corn Dancers. I wanted a rug that could echo the memories of my Grandparents home and the Bandera has done just that, it's beautiful!
