No Horsing Around - This Buckle is the Real Deal!

Double D Ranch is pleased to offer this beautiful vintage belt by renowned Zuni artisan Isabel Simplicio.

The strap is a tooled leather with ethnographic use that adds an element of character as if it’s a handed down heirloom. Whether you’re a rodeo queen or a casual cowgirl, this belt is a fabulous vintage find.
