Our complimentary personalisation service over Christmas
If you want to make your bespoke gift even more individual by putting your own unique mark on it, pampeano’s personalisation service is complimentary over the Christmas period. You can personalise many of our leather items with up to three initials. The process is called debossing and is where the chosen letters are pressed into the buttery soft leather to create indented initials.
Your chosen monogram will be indented onto the premium grade leather – in a process known as plain blind debossing. If you want to add additional Christmas sparkle with gold and silver lettering to your gift, this is also possible. For gold and silver debossing, foil is applied to the area and the letters are heated and pressed into the leather.
Gold and silver personalisation is available on our polo belts, dog leads, headcollars, lead ropes and picnic straps. If you want to personalise other leather items, this can be done as plain blind debossed – that is, without colour.
Topping our Christmas lust list for ladies is pampeano’s gorgeous alpaca wool, fur-trimmed cape. Picture her on the ubiquitous family Christmas walk, looking very Dr Zhivago-esque, with a South American twist, as she steps out in style in this captivating cape.
Made of 100% alpaca wool, with alpaca fur trim detail, this cape is luxury personified. In this cape, she will sashay her way through the party season effortlessly.
It looks doubly delectable when cinched at the waist with one of our classic leather polo belts. And for full on glamourous chic, pair with pampeano’s Moda boots (as featured in the 2017 Polo Times’ Christmas gift guide).
She will also have fun devising dreamy pampeano Christmas outfits with a pampeano cashmere scarf. This looks equally as sumptuous worn as a large neck scarf, artfully draped around the shoulders or layered over a cashmere jumper with one of our polo belts, such as the pretty Rosa belts with its rose pink, bright fuchsia and classic navy threads.
The gorgeous layering and quality contrasting textures of the cashmere and leather are sure to turn heads – enhanced by a pop of vibrant colour from the iconic pampa diamond embroidery design running through the belt. Thanks to the quality and durability of our pieces, these classic conjurings in cloth will only ever improve with age and will last a lifetime of Christmases.
For memorable gifts for gentlemen, our editor’s pick is pampeano’s striking Black label polo belt with luxurious leather and suede luggage trunk. The exquisite belt exudes quality and glamour.
The Black Label polo belt is made from the very finest leather from Argentina, sourced from a tannery near La Pampa, Argentina – where pampeano has its roots. Here pampeano’s skilled artisans choose the very best quality bands of jet black leather. The raw edges are waxed and painted before the iconic pampa diamond pattern is pressed into the leather with expert precision. The design is then handwoven onto the leather using matching, jet black, wax-dipped saddlery threads. The Black Label belt showcases the skills and artistic flair of our highly trained craftsmen. Each belt – as with all our polo belts – takes about four and five hours to make.
It is beautifully presented in an eye-catching gift box, which makes a statement all on its own. The front of the box has been hand-woven with the iconic pampa diamond, using the same threads and technique found on the polo belt itself.
Our classic polo belts also make unique Christmas gifts. The Multi polo belt will add an extra sparkle with its gorgeous navy, racing green, cream, turquoise and red wax-dipped saddlery threads used to depict pampeano’s pampa diamond.
Our super soft leather Hombre washbags are stylish and practical and make fabulous Christmas gifts. Add your loved one’s initials by choosing our complimentary personalisation service over Christmas and you have the perfect present that he will cherish for years to come. See more here.
The sign of a well-dressed gentleman is a pair of cufflinks, so why not treat him to a handcrafted leather cufflink box to make the perfect union. Made of 100 per cent leather in earthy tones of tanned buffalo leather, this sophisticated cufflink case has an antique look about it. Boasting 12 compartments, this superior box also has a pleasing magnetic snap closure, with a small handle on the front - making it perfect to take on your travels. This charming cadeau will delight all year round.
If the gentleman in your life is a gastronome, pampeano’s Champagne cooler will whet his appetite. Pair with his favourite vintage fizz and some Gentleman’s Relish and you have all the ingredients for a sophisticated Yuletide soiree.
Fab-u-lous stocking fillers
Waking up on Christmas morning and opening your stocking evokes childhood memories. It remains a joy, no matter what age. Some fun stocking fillers include our rabbit fur pom pom keyrings – in gorgeous vibrant colours and two sizes (large and small).
Another fabulous yuletide stocking filler is pampeano’s beautiful handcrafted heart leather keyring, which features our magical pampa diamond design which has been meticulously hand embroidered onto the buttery soft leather. A delightful gift - whether you are eight, eighteen or eighty.
The pampa diamond is pampeano’s trademark and takes its name and influence from La Pampa, Argentina – pampeano’s birth place.
The magic of Christmas for little ones
pampeano has some magical Christmas surprises for children, too. Who can resist our delectable charming 12” baby polo mallets, which make a fun gift for toddlers (with parental supervision, of course!) or as a Christening gift to mark the arrival of a new born whose proud mum and dad are polo enthusiasts. There is also the option of having baby’s initials hand painted onto the mallet.
pampeano’s beautiful sheepskin baby booties and matching mittens will delight mother and baby alike. They will also be vital accessories to keep little hands and toes warm on the Christmas Day walk.
Meanwhile, our children’s polo belts are sure to raise a smile among younger members of the household this yuletide.
The Sereno belt is a beautiful unisex design, with a mix of grey-blue, cream and navy threads that look stunning against the belt’s main band of signature Havana brown leather. Our children’s belts are made to a narrower width of 2.5 centimetres, with lengths of 70 or 75 centimetres measured to the middle hole, which is fully adjustable.
Our embroidered polo belts are famed for their quality and durability - ideal for children’s adventures. The waxed saddlery threads are securely woven and are easily cleaned with a damp sponge.
