pampeano means “from La Pampa”, a wild region of Argentina renowned for its stunning, panoramic views and sun-drenched estancias; the region where pampeano was founded, and where our luxury leather accessories are still hand-made today.
Inspired by South America’s rich heritage of unrivalled horsemanship and traditional leather work, pampeano evolved from the polo fields of central Argentina, providing teams with their colours using intricately hand-woven leather polo belts; to becoming a leader in technical polo equipment.
Today, pampeano’s exquisite, traditionally made, quality leather goods are treasured by those that appreciate the simplicity, beauty and freedom of the South American lifestyle.
Commitment to quality
pampeano remains one of the few luxury brands with quality and traditional craftsmanship at its heart; from our iconic luxury leather polo belts for which we are known world-over, to our seasonal ranges updated yearly to reflect the ever-changing world of fashion, the pampa diamond is a seal of quality trusted by people across the globe.
pampeano’s master artisans hand craft is incorporated into each product, hand-woven with the finest wax-dipped saddlery threads available, in a meticulous, painstaking practise which has been passed down within families for generations and takes up to five hours per piece.
Borne from tradition
It is then vegetable-tanned and tumbled in a lengthy and traditional process passed down through generations using natural dyes which creates exquisite, butter-soft results in the luxurious leather which last for many years to come.
Design and vibrancy
The iconic pampa diamonds are a traditional Aztec motif inspired by the peaks and valleys of the ancient Andes Mountain range. The eye-catching stitching is hand-woven using a thick, wax-dipped thread, originally used for saddlery. The wax coating enables the thread to glide through the leather for hand-stitching, whilst adding strength to the thread, and keeping the colour vibrant and looking its best.
The making of a pampeano polo belt
Using the vegetable tanning process undoubtedly creates a higher quality of product, from the aesthetic finish to the quality of the leather itself. It also creates a product which is aromatic and there’s no better smell than the fresh, natural aroma of vegetable tanned leather. Providing an authentic piece of South American indulgence and adventure, pampeano inspires you to be part of something exceptional.
