The Puna Collection has travelled from the salt flats and elevated plains of northern Argentina. The indigenous communities who inhabit the harsh Puna landscape live at high altitudes, isolated from the post-colonial way of life but deeply connected to Andean culture and Pachamama, ‘Mother Earth’. Rugs in the Puna Collection feature simple geometric shapes, repeated and arranged to create original patterns. Ethnic motifs often represent mountainscapes and ways of cropping the fields. Neutral panels with pops of bright colour are woven from a mix of sheep’s and llama’s wool, giving Puna rugs a soft, warm character.
Handwoven by skilled artisans, these Puna rugs have been sourced directly for a fair price from the communities where they were made. When you purchase a Puna rug, you’re helping Pampa trace the map that connects Argentina’s talented artisans with the global community.
Style tip: Made in communities where the winter is cold, Puna pieces are multipurpose textiles that can be used as rugs or heavy blankets, or to decorate the end of the bed.
