"Lozano handcrafted this quirt using a 24-plait body of softened rawhide for contrast, over a braided 6-plait natural rawhide round core on a twisted rawhide foundation. The quirt handle, which showcases Lozano’s combination of various techniques, was created utilizing natural rawhide. Pedro Pedrini crafted the hand stitched, scroll motif popper.
Spanish Ring knots frame a segment of braidwork incorporating appliqués utilizing the “Contramondonguillo” (counterclockwise braid) technique to create relief and contrast.
Herringbone buttons and Spanish rings frame a segment of braidwork in a 1X1 pattern centerpiece, incorporating appliqués utilizing the “Contramondonguillo” (counterclockwise braid) technique.

The fancy handle features a folded rawhide ring to secure a stainless steel metal ring braided with one single strand in 12 passes, concealing the ends. Also, a “Trenza Patria” traditional flat braided wrist strap consists of 16-strands in natural color rawhide. Featuring a sliding button for adjustment and finish into a natural color Herringbone button.

The hand carved leather popper designed and fabricated by Saddlemaker Pedro Pedrini features a scroll motif. It is lined and stitched by hand with a dyed edge, and features the TCAA logo in the front and back. Also, the maker’s stamp in the lining."

Born in Buenos Aires, Pablo Lozano’s family tradition is tied to Argentina’s cattle heritage. At age 15 he began studying rawhide braiding with his mentor, the late Don Luis Alberto Flores. A career rawhide braider, Lozano believes in the concept of apprenticeship as a means to educate and preserve traditional arts. He has been awarded Best of Show several times at the Sociedad Rural Argentina and is a member of their panel of judges. Lozano frequently participates in braiding seminars and workshops in the United States, and was awarded the 2015 Braider of the Year by the Academy of Western Artists.
