San Gil Fique 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.

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.
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.
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.

I LOVE THIS RUNNER
I really appreciate the runner’s durability, high quality texture, and unique olive green color. It’s a great size for my hallway.
The color is beautiful deep olive and the touch is softer than jute rugs. We especially like the thickness of the rug. Love it!
Stunning and Saturated Color
I ordered (2) of the runner style of this rug to cover a long hallway - I am so impressed by the quality, feel, and deep color. Highly recommend!
Flaws in Carpet
We purchased three of the rose colored runners and one of them came with dirty spots all over it. The color variation is very noticeable. The other two rugs were in perfect condition. We have had these rugs in storage for the past year because of COVID so we no longer qualify for a return. Were just stuck with a damaged rug. Not sure if it is water/mildew damage or just bad dye!
Hi Frank, We’re so sorry to hear that this rug did not live up to your expectations. While, yes, color variations can occur due to the natural dyes used - moisture and exposure to the elements can also affect them. We’d love to prove our commitment to quality, so please feel free to reach out to our Client Experience team and they’ll provide you a little something to put towards a future order! Hopefully this beauty can find a spot in your home- as well as some of our other room-makers! Best, The Citizenry Team
Well-made runner and nearly perfect!
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.
Beautiful, but not great for indoors
Wanted to love this rug, but ended up returning it. The rose color is gorgeous and the pattern and thickness is also a great way to add texture with a neutral color. But the material is quite rough—better suited for an outdoor space or as a doormat than a soft rug next to a bed.
