This month, pampeano is launching two very special belts to celebrate the great sporting summer of 2016. In less than six months, all eyes will be on Brazil for the grand opening ceremony of the world’s most important sporting event. Over 10,000 athletes from 200 countries are expected to congregate in Rio, just as athletes travelled from far and wide to Olympia in Ancient Greece, over 3000 years ago. The best of the best have been selected by their countries to perform on the world-stage, and to demonstrate to millions of spectators what a lifetime of dedication and meticulous hard work can achieve. It is perhaps for this reason that so many of us sit glued to our favourite matches and games, choosing our favourite competitors and rooting for our home teams. We can appreciate the incredible accomplishments of the athletes and in some way, we too are able to take part in the spirit of the events, and the thrill of the competition.
pampeano has its roots in South America, in the plains of La Pampa, where the tradition of horsemanship is still thriving. It is a haven for lovers of equestrian sport and what is more, a world-renowned destination for leatherwork and craftsmanship. For many years, pampeano has been developing this South American heritage of leatherwork with our unique British design, and we have created a product whose quality is unsurpassed. This is a rare treasure and a piece of luxury that is made to last you for many years to come.
Our two belts celebrate Britain's participation in the games, and Brazil, its host country. Our stunning take on the Union Jack is woven by hand onto our signature thick, buttery soft leather, and can be worn with a crisp white shirt tucked into the belt line, to allow you to show off this design with pride. The vibrant red next to the royal blue threads makes this an unmistakably British belt, perfect for wearing as a spectator to show your support at even the most luxury of sporting events. Our second belt was created in honour of Rio. Bright, golden yellow saddlery threads have been woven amongst blue and green to create the Brazilian flag, which is synonymous with sporting achievement and famous teams. You will be able to own a wonderful memento of the exciting season ahead, with this luxury piece of South American craftsmanship brought to you proudly by pampeano.
pampeano: be inspired.
