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. Traditional Argentinian 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.
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.
Care and instructions + -
Always use and underlay on any floor surface (we provide FREE underlays with rugs purchased through our online store).
Avoid direct and continuous exposure to sunlight, moisture and rotate to promote even wear. Carefully vacuum your rug and have it professionally clean when needed. For more info refer to our Care + Maintenance.
Pilling is a natural part of the wool’s life cycle caused by the friction of the fibers rubbing together. While there is no way of preventing pilling you can easily remove it. Simply remove any pills with your fingers or a good wool comb to reveal the fresh fibers underneath.
The wool will pill less and less as time goes on.
