San Gil Accent Rug
The beauty of this hand braided accent rug starts with the material itself. Traditionally used to make bags for coffee or cocoa beans, fique is a natural fiber known for its durability and strength. Native to Colombia, this incredibly sustainable plant also requires very little water and is biodegradable.
Once the fique fiber is spun into ropes, master weavers then braid these intricate rug designs. The end result? A natural accent rug that’s so stunning, you’ll want one in every room.
Masterfully braided by hand in the mountains of Colombia, each rug takes 10 days to complete. All made start-to-finish in a fair trade environment.
We recommend using a rug pad to reduce slippage.

We bought the San Gil runner in the beautiful blush color for our hallway. It's true to the pictures on the website. And comes beautifully braided from recycled (upcycled) Colombian coffee bags which we loved (as coffee lovers!). However, it was a bit too thick and felt a bit rough to us. The thickness also was an issue with our particular robot cleaner as it struggled to get on the rug :( We were afraid that some of the beautiful, thick fibers on the rug may get compromised if we used it to clean the rug. If you don't mind a slightly more rough feel to your rug and cleaning/brushing it yourself, I think it's perfect! We exchanged it for the Asha runner. Look forward to reviewing it after it arrives.
I purchased 2 runners and a small area rug for a dressing room Bathroom and bedroom and I am disappointed that they are not at all soft for bare feet. They are more rough like a doormat.
Leslie, Thank you so much for your feedback, although we’re so sorry to hear that the texture of the rugs wasn’t what you had expected. This particular style is hand-braided from a natural fiber known for its durability and, while softer than a traditional jute rug, is not as soft as a rug made from wool. We’re sorry for any confusion and will pass your note along to our Marketing and Design Teams to be more clear going forward. If there is anything else we can do, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re here to help! Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
The color and style are pretty, but it doesn't lay flat. One entire edge, especially on the corner, is folded up which caused my holiday guests to constantly trip over it (and me, still). I can't get it to lay flat even if I fold the corner under for a period of time. I don't recommend unless you are placing it in an area that doesn't have much foot traffic.
Christina, Thank you for your feedback — it means the world. We’re sorry to hear that this has been your experience with our San Gil rug. Have you tried ironing (on low) with a towel? That typically helps with pesky corners, as well as a rug pad to help the rug stay in place. Still, we’re sorry that your experience has been a less-than-perfect one. So please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if we can help in any way. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
Gorgeous that perfectly accents the Keya runner.
I love everything I have ordered from your website except these rugs. The pink color is so pretty and the weight and hand feels nice quality. I especially love the way the weave makes a U shape at the edges. I ordered 2 to use in front of our sinks in the master. It was too thick so I moved it to our kitchen but the edges kept curling up on just one of the rugs. I tried laying books on it every night to see if it would help. I used rug pads with them. The same rug that would not uncurl also frayed more than the other. Wished I loved it but I ended up returning both rugs since I needed them as a pair. I kept tripping over them in the kitchen (on a rug pad on hardwood floor).
Jennifer, Thank you for your note — feedback like yours is invaluable to us. We’re sorry to hear that this was your experience with these rugs. While the handcrafted nature does lend itself to variations in the weave, this should not have happened. We’ve sent your note to our Design Team to triple check the design specifications and quality of the latest batch. In the meantime, we’re happy to hear that we were able to remedy this for you. If there is anything else we can do to help, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
Fantastic accent rug. Casual yet smart looking, comfortable underfoot, custom feel. Highly recommend.
