Pampeano Polo Belt – ‘Valiente’
This attractive Argentine polo belt is handstitched with the colours of the countryside. Made from luxury Argentine leather, the Valiente recalls outdoor adventure, from earthy greens to neutral shades of brown.
The journey of the each belt starts with a vegetable tanning process, which has been perfected over generations of work by skilled artisans. The finest vegetable tanned leather is sought from tanneries across Argentina, and is then cut into perfectly sized bands. The edges of the belts are coloured and finished to match the colour of the leather. Using a specially created tool, the iconic pampa pattern is pressed into the leather, ready for handstitching.
Each belt taking about 5 hours to be meticulously threaded by a skilled weaver. It’s a surprisingly difficult job to do well and we take great pride in employing only the best weavers for our polo belts. The quality of the thread is as important as the quality of the leather, and it is for this that we are best known. Exquisite leather, perfect thread and skilled craftsmanship all combine to give our polo belts the reputation they deserve.

Pampeano means 'from La Pampa', a wild region of Argentina renowned for its stunning, panoramic views and sun-drenched estancias.
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 for both horse and player. Today, pampeano's exquisite leather goods are treasured by those that appreciate the simplicity, beauty and freedom of the South American lifestyle.
Pampeano remains one of the few brands with quality and craftsmanship at its heart. Continuing the cherished techniques of the South American artisans, pampeano uses only premium-grade, butter-soft, vegetable tanned leather and the finest, luxury textiles and threads available. The meticulously practised and perfected skills employed by its artisans have been passed down within their families for generations. Their hand craft is incorporated into pampeano's iconic pampa diamonds, shapes inspired by the peaks and silhouettes of the Andes Mountains and the extraordinary landscapes that surround them.
