Elementos Argentinos is a Buenos Aires based company that designs, produces and sells rugs & home textiles made by more than 135 weavers and artisans from 12 different provinces from the North of Argentina.

The entire production is completely handmade using pure sheep wool, spun by spindle or distaff, dyed with natural pigments or mineral dyes, and woven in looms of different sizes, allowing them to provide customers with a wide range of products: anything from a grand rug for a hotel to small bedside pieces.

The flagship store is located at Gurruchaga 1881, Palermo Viejo, and also features a Rug Design Studio at Arenales 1170, Recoleta, Buenos Aires, Argentina. In both stores, and also online, guests can design and order their own rug with worldwide shipping.

In 2017 their rugs received the "Good Design Hallmark" given by the Ministry of Production of Argentina, and in 2018 Elementos Argentinos was distinguished with the Kaufman Award for Outstanding Social Impact given by ISPI - International Society for Performance Improvement - at the American Embassy in Buenos Aires.
