Mendoza Chunky Wool Area Rug

Easy 30 Day Returns

With the versatility of jute, but the supreme softness that comes from 100% wool, this rug is durable, unexpectedly neutral...and did we mention oh-so-soft? The super chunky wool gives it a plush feel, and the striking design adds a just-right amount of visual interest. Hand-dyed using natural pigments, this rug is a thing of beauty and truly special.

Each rug is handwoven by a fair trade workshop in Santiago del Estero, Argentina. From sourcing the wool locally, to cleaning, spinning, dyeing by hand, and then weaving, they have mastered every part of the process. From start-to-finish, it can take up to eight weeks to complete one rug.

We recommend using a rug pad to avoid slippage.

Also available as a runner.

Fair Trade. Guaranteed. 100% of our products are made with a process guaranteed by the World Fair Trade Organization.

Our rugs are handcrafted to last a lifetime, made using the highest quality natural fibers – no synthetic materials like viscose, rayon, or polyester are used.

Basic care:

Because each rug is handcrafted with only natural materials, it is normal to see loose fibers or shedding in the first six months. 

Vacuum lightly at least once weekly using only low suction and no beater brush, as this may damage the rug. More frequent vacuuming will help prevent shedding.

Avoid placing rugs in prolonged direct sunlight as this can cause fading.

Rotate your rug every 3-6 months. This will help prevent excessive wear and fading in one area.

The use of a rug pad will keep your rug lying smooth and flat and will help prevent slippage.

Treating stains:

For jute rugs, do not use liquids for stain treatment – liquids will damage and discolor the natural fibers. Instead, use a dry rug shampoo or baking soda. Sprinkle the dry shampoo on the rug and allow it to sit for a couple of hours. Vacuum up the dry shampoo and flip the rug over to repeat on the other side. When in doubt, professional cleaning is always best.

  • Most in-stock items will ship via FedEx Ground in 7-10 business days unless otherwise noted.

  • Exchanges and returns for store credit are free.

Perfect rug for our mountain cabin.

This rug is truly soft on the feet and good looking. It defines the living space and adds a rustic feel without dominating the room. The design with the stripes adds an element of sophistication while feeling just right for our cabin in the woods.

Gorgeous but concerned

I love this rug for its color, warmth and feel under my feet. However I am very concerned about the edges coming undone. The loose weave at the edge has caused small pieces of wool come out. It makes me unsure of the longevity of this rug.


The Citizenry

Thank you for your note- we love that you are enjoying your new rug. Although we’re so sorry to hear that the edges aren't quite as they should be. These beauties are handwoven for durability and should last for years to come. We want to take a closer look though, so our client experience team will be reaching out to assist you. Thanks again for taking the time to write, it means the world. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team

Amazing, Authentic quality

I was hesitant to make this purchase but am so glad I did. I am afraid this company just may make me a rug hoarder! The rug came faster than expected. Its a super dense, hefty rug. It just feels like quality. Super soft under foot. I went with the mustard color. It is a bit darker than in the pictures but still lovely. It did have a bit of an earthy smell to it, which just adds to the authenticity really, which aired out nicely. It had some wrinkles from being folded during shipment that easily flattened out after a few days on the floor. If you are used to mass produced, perfect rugs, these may not be for you. If you want authentic, high quality, unique heirloom pieces for your home with character; then I can't recommend this company enough. Thank you Citizenry!!

Fast customer service, product quality is as advertised!

First time purchasing from The Citizenry. While I’ve made many online home furnishing purchases with mostly positive results, like many shoppers, I am conditioned to be skeptical of the timeliness of delivery AND customer service experience. My rug arrived today on time, with no defects. While the color of the rug comes across as more white on the website, it’s definitely a more natural tone which works even better in my living room.

A great addition to our living room.

We were looking for a new rug because our 10 month old was having some skin issues from our old one. This rug is so soft, we spend all day playing on it. It looks and feels great.

Rich earth tones, great feel

I love this rug - thick, soft, and beautiful colors. Adds an earthy bohemian feel to the room. I bought the mustard color after a long internal debate, as they all look lovely. Potential buyers should know there are a few loose bits so don't expect perfection in the weave (think of this like a jute rug as the description states), and there is a strong (but clean) wool smell with this rug that diminishes quickly in the first few days.
