A New Australian Textiles Collection Inspired By ’70s Shag
We’ve never been shy about our love of shag, fringe, and all things hairy, so does it come as a surprise that we’re extremely into the new Textural line of rugs and cushions by Byron Bay–based Australian brand Pampa? Featuring oversized fringes and heavy weaves, and inspired by ’70s-era shag pile carpets and the woolly textiles of log cabins, each piece in the collection is handmade by artisans in Argentina. Pampa co-founders Victoria Aguirre and Carl Wilson met there while surfing in 2013 (Aguirre is a native Argentinian), and moved back to Wilson’s homeland of Australia to found the brand, which ably merges the two cultures — Latin American craftsmanship mixed with a palette that looks just right on the beachy coast. Check out some of our favorites below.
