Description + -
The Monte Collection has travelled from the dry forests of northern Argentina, an area known simply as the Monte. Here, different groups of weavers use sheep’s wool to create monochrome and neutral rugs inspired by the dry, sunbaked forests and desert landscapes their ancestors have lived among for centuries. The use of bright colours is a reference to the flowers, insects and other lifeforms that roam the Monte, some of which are now just a memory.
Handwoven by skilled artisans, these Monte rugs have been sourced directly for a fair price from the communities where they were made. Many of the rugs in this collection use designs and colour-ways that are exclusive to Argentina and cannot be found anywhere else in the world. When you purchase a Monte rug, you’re helping Pampa trace the map that connects Argentina’s talented artisans with the global community.
Our rugs are woven in traditional ways typical to Latin American rugs, where the looms used are generally the width of the arm span of the weaver. Depending on the width of the weaver's loom, the rug may have one or more discreet unions where the panels of the rug are joined, which are a beautiful element of their handmade nature.
We provide FREE underlays with rugs purchased through our online store.
