Puro is defined by a simple palette of natural and local materials such as oak wood, cement sinks and bathroom walls, recovered mares-stone walls – the limestone used in traditional majorcan architecture –, natural hemp ropes, stainless steel switches and fittings, aged leather, linen, cotton, fabrics designed by Ohlab and produced on ancient Majorcan looms for upholstery, cushions and plaids, raffia carpets and wicker baskets produced locally. The solid wooden mandala doors, hallmark of the hotel since its origins, have been recovered.
