Pampa has soul
Businesses and brands with soul are always so lovely to encounter. At The Design Hunter we aim to support brands that have that special connection with their product. Pampa is one of those brands – a home grown business based in the Byron Bay hinterland. Established by two photographers – one from Argentina, the other from Australia – who share two worlds, two visions and two cultures. Together they “trace a map between Australia and Argentina, covering the miles and bridging the distance between two countries that are more alike than different.” Every year the duo “explore some of Argentina’s most remote indigenous communities, always with a camera in hand to document the journey. During these travels they seek-out the finest rugs and cushions that have been handwoven using traditional materials, designs and techniques by some of Argentina’s most talented artisans, bringing them back across the world from their homes to yours.” Each rug is a one off piece and completely unique. According to their website Pampa believes in a world of ethically made and fairly traded products, which is why they deal directly with the artisans. The profits the weavers earn from every rug are used by them and their families to cover day-to-day living costs such as buying food and clothing, paying school expenses, accessing medical care, and sourcing new tools and materials for weaving. The Design Hunter is proud to stock Pampa, but due to the nature of the product you will have to be quick to snap one up.
