From Argentina to John Lewis: Pampeano’s Argentine leather belts hit the high street

Earlier this year we met Jenny Brown, founder of polo retailer Pampeano, who borrowed £30,000 from 415 people through Funding Circle.

Pampeano, located in Dorton, near Aylesbury, supplies the majority of UK polo retailers with own label polo equipment. They also design fashionable handmade polo belts, made from Argentine leather.

Having set up Pampeano in 2008, Jenny has successfully grown her business over the years and has recently secured a contract with major UK department store, John Lewis. Pampeano belts are now on sale at some of their stores and online.

Their business loan has helped them buy the stock needed to fulfil this contract, and will fuel their growth even further.

In this short video, Jenny shares her business story and what she liked about her Funding Circle experience. She is determined to grow the brand over the coming years so watch out, you may hear more about Pampeano soon!
