The Alium Story
Contemporary Traditional Craftmanship
Welcome to Alium - Pueblo Garzón "A Rustic retreat in Uruguay" - The New York Times 2013
Alium boutique in Pueblo Garzón was founded in 2008 by Carolyn Prevett and Mariano Piñeyrúa design grads from Montevideo’s Design Center.
We are a local brand inspired by the SLOW MOVEMENT; iniciated in Italy, this movement manifest is based in respecting the natural process of every aspect in life. Everything we sell and design is hand made with carefull hands of craftmen in Uruguay.
Our main objective is to preserve and promote our own traditions and materials through the products we sell.
The ALIUM VALUE
We promote the good and simple things of life. Reading a book enjoying a tasty glass of wine, having a romantic dinner by the fireplace or a picnic with friends. Horseback riding in the countryside and enjoy a nice family “asado”.
Over the last 6 years we have selected every product, analyzed every detail to combine and create a great curated design collection from Uruguay representing its culture and values.
That’s our heritage.
