San Antonio

There are few places with stronger links than San Antonio de Areco to the real world of the Gaucho. Founded in 1730 this rural town on the banks of the Areco river is home to Ricardo Güiraldes Gaucho Museum and the well known Draghi Silversmith Museum.

On the 10th November each year (Día de la Tradición) San Antonio hosts the oldest Gaucho Festival in Argentina, culminating in a horseback procession of Gauchos from all over Argentina dressed in their finery, with their colour coded ponchos revealing the provinces from which they have travelled.

Our San Antonio belt reflects the respect of the Gauchos for rugged leather, and is one that will appeal folks worldwide.

One of our originals from thirty years ago, and back by popular demand, this stunning 3.5cm wide belt, intricately crafted from a rich brown vegetable tanned leather, will not disappoint!
