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 sheep or llama wools, dye them carefully, and weave them for strength. Following these suggestions will ensure your rugs can be treasured for a lifetime.
Vacuum rugs lightly and avoid direct and prolonged sunlight exposure.
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.

This product is truly beautiful in quality, looks and feel. I planned to put it in my kitchen as a runner but it wasn't the look I wanted HOWEVER it is so beautiful I am keeping it and plan to use it in a hallway were are putting wood floors.
The quality of the rug was as-expected. However, I am very disappointed to say the colors are very different than as shown online. I see now that the company noted in other customer responses that "slight variations in color are expected.", but the rug I received is not like the red pictured at all. Instead, its solidly in the brown family. If that works for your room, this is a nice rug - but we purchased this one specifically for the red. Very disappointed I am now expected to pay $25 to return an item that does not match even one of the many online photos (if colors vary (i) so should the photos and (ii) that should be in the product description).
Katie, Thank you for your note — it means the world to us as we continue to grow. We’re so sorry to hear that this rug did not align with your expectations when it arrived. While, yes, color variations can occur due to the natural dyes used, we want you to love everything in your home. Especially when it comes to a room-maker like this rug. We want to make this right, so our Client Experience Team will be reaching out to you to refund the return fee. It’s the least we can do, simply put. Thank you again for your feedback. Hopefully we’re able to prove our commitment to quality, excellence, and craftsmanship to you down the road. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
Love the rug- definitely well made and beautiful colors. Only complaint is that it seems to attract and show dirt and curls at the edges. I’ll need to train it a bit to lie flat.
Karen, Thank you for your note! We’re happy to hear that you’re loving your rug (she’s a favorite around The Citizenry office). Sometimes, handwoven sheep’s wool rugs do need a bit of training at first in order to get them to lay just right. We recommend placing a towel over the edges and ironing them on low heat — that should do the trick. In the meantime, our Client Experience Team will be checking in with you to ensure you’re happy with your rug. We want you to love everything in your home after all, and feedback like yours is so important to us as we continue to grow. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
The rug looks very rich in color and substantial in feel. It really anchors a room with bright but not overly saturated colors.
The rug delivered looked nothing like the picture and the colors were inconsistent with the catalog description. The picture should be updated to be more representative of what is actually being sold.
Hi Reed, Thanks for your review for our Bandera Accent Rug. These beauties are hand-dyed in Oaxaca with native plant extracts and berries, so slight variations in color are expected. Though, we're so sorry to hear that the rug you received didn't meet your expectations. Our client experience team has reached out directly to check in with you, but feel free to reach out anytime at - firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks again for taking the time to share your feedback. Best, - The Citizenry Team
