Pampa’s handwoven rugs have a story to tell


All the way from the salt flflats and elevated plains of northern Argentina, the Puna weavers’ collection of rugs are sourced directly from the community where they are made – for a fair price. Showcasing geometric patterns representa­tive of the mountainsc­apes and fifields, the combinatio­n of sheep’s and llama’s wool creates a soft, warm texture.
