The Gaucho: Creating a Legend
As the lifestyle of the Gaucho slowly faded and their lives changed, their legend continued to grow.
Gauchos were a people unto themselves. One had to be born a gaucho - you did not become. Their rugged and adventurous lifestyle, as well as the accouterments that helped them survive, became as legendary as they were. Engraved silver knives, hand-woven ponchos, rugged ropes, and spirited horses defined their culture and their image.
Today, the South American Gaucho rivals that of the American West’s Cowboy. He is celebrated as a great part of Argentinian culture and is remembered by many writers and storytellers.
Double D Ranch pays tribute to this authentic, free-spirit in our 2016 Fall Collection, Les Gauchos.
