What are the timelines?
The timing depends on the availability and on the orders in progress. We always have a stock, however, at certain times of the year or for particular colors, we will produce the Pumas especially for you when you order. Since it is an artisanal product made on the lathe and hand-enameled, the entire process requires a MINIMUM of 7/10 working days, this means that we cannot guarantee and be certain of the delivery times, so we ask you to order for time.

How is the size of the Apulian Pumo calculated?
The size of is calculated in the sense of height, the width is proportioned as in the photo.

Are the dimensions accurate?
No, the dimensions will never be precise, because it is a handmade product, handcrafted and made specifically for you, so there may be discards of up to 1 cm, if you buy 4 Pumi of 14 cm it could happen that one is slightly more longer than normal and one slightly shorter than normal, which is not a defect, indeed, a merit, precisely because all our pumas are handmade from beginning to end.

Are PUMI available?

If your order is not available, the status IN PRODUCTION will change and we will inform you of everything by email. In any case, we are always available for any doubt or question.

Do you make packages?
We do not make packages for ceremonies, because the pumas are packed for shipping and therefore specially protected. The boxes are available separately and here you will find solutions by choosing them based on the measurements.

How are the pumas shipped?
The pumas are shipped appropriately wrapped in a plastic material - the bubble wrap, a particular plastic sheet strengthened by many "bubbles" of air - designed to protect them better during the trip. Once packed, they are placed in your package.

What happens if the pumas arrive broken?
Usually our ceramic products do not arrive broken, because we put the utmost care in the packaging, using a sturdy "bubble wrap" and packing them firmly inside the package. However, it is not in our interest to send a package that runs the risk of breaking. In the unfortunate event of this happening, however, the product will be returned to you again at our expense.

Il Pumo, a unique Apulian handicraft

Pumo is a typical decorative element of the Apulian handicraft, which you will surely notice during a vacation in Puglia. Looking upwards and observing the splendid baroque balconies of many small villages of the Italian heel, you will notice strange “eggs” embellished with leaves right there, in beautiful view.

Today the Apulian and Salentine decorators make and decorate these beautiful eggs still by hand, just like their fathers did. Sometimes the colors are fanciful and the motifs stylized, at other times the pumo takes on a splendid white color tending to iridescent.

It is a truly unique object of its kind, and you can travel around the world without finding anything like it! But where does this sinuously elegant and yet so singular form come from?

Symbols of Pumo

The shape of the pumo, let us consider it, is precisely that of a bud about to bloom. A closed bud, surrounded by tender leaves. In Puglia it is made of glazed ceramic in various colors: white is very common, but you will also find it in a splendid aquamarine, green, red, or even decorated in many different ways, mixing baroque motifs and bright colors together.

The bud is a symbol of rebirth and a good omen. And speaking of rebirth, if you notice the pumo will also be easily associated with an egg, symbol of Easter and the rebirth par excellence. An elegant sinuous decorative motif, perfect for your exteriors or for your interiors, splendid to exhibit on a sideboard or in a display case.

Gift idea, favor or souvenir?

Pumo is a wonderful gift idea for spouses who are about to start a life together or for a family that moves into a new home; or again, for a shopkeeper who is preparing to start a new business, for example.

All this because pumo - whether interpreted as an egg or as a bud - is exactly a symbol of good luck and a good omen for the future to come.
A wonderful idea for a wedding favor to offer to guests at a wedding, or a nice "souvenir" to take home after a trip to Puglia. A very elegant and always up-to-date furnishing object.
The more it grows, the more details there are, especially on the leaves and inside the base. You can browse the photos of the various measurements by clicking on the size, we have inserted some samples to realize the type of detail that can change.
Up to the size 12cm the base of the Pumo has a base in the inner flat and unglazed, from the 14cm the inside of the base is empty, enameled with the hole.
