50 years of Buckaroo
\50 YEARS OF BUCKAROO
2021 marks 50 years of Buckaroo. Who would have thought a backyard workshop would turn into what Buckaroo is today.
From humble beginnings in South Africa, in 1971, a love of leatherwork quickly morphed into a fully-fledged family business — relocating to Australia, with the land down under laying deep roots at the heart of our Buckaroo brand.
The late nineties saw a seemingly simple request by two Maori tradesmen dramatically change the Buckaroo brand's trajectory. They were sourcing a tool belt that was comfortable, high quality and supportive. The product was Buckaroo's now best-seller – the Signature Belt.
This bespoke design single-handedly revolutionised the way tradies carried their tools and ushered in a new and exciting era for Buckaroo and the greater industry.
“Dad’s design blew it out of the water; he brought an aesthetic to the industry that wasn’t there before” - Tanya, CEO
Now, helmed by a second-generation fearless Buckaroo woman, the brand's core values of integrity, collaboration, dedication, innovation and family are firmly and proudly upheld.
“I immediately started a new foundation for the business that focused on what we did best. I had a focused desire to take it to a place I felt it could go." - Tanya CEO
