Mexican Loop Holster – Santa Fe Model 1860


The Mexican double loop holster was predominantly used in the mid to late 1800’s by Mexican vaqueros and early settlers of the Southwest. The Santa Fe is Kirkpatrick’s take on the classic Mexican loop holster, given the large demand we see an authentic version of these gun holsters.

Predominantly worn at the hip of Mexican Vaqueros during the mid-to-late 1800’s, the Mexican double loop holster is an iconic part of Western lore. This beautiful holster design was either developed in Northern Mexico or the American Southwest, possibly even near the Kirkpatrick Leather shop on the border in Laredo, Texas. 

The Santa Fe is our answer to demand for this iconic western holster. It has a three inch wide belt, as well as twenty four hand-molded bullet loops, genuine latigo leg and hammer tie downs.. In the tradition of the Old West, this model is finished with a hand stamped border which highlights this beautiful hand-dyed rig.

Available for Colt and Ruger single action revolvers and some double action revolvers.

Since 1950, we’ve been proudly making our custom holsters in the great state of Texas. All of our old west style holsters are handmade with high quality United States leather.

How our holsters are built

We start by cutting from the best part of the hide. We then hand dye the holster to ensure a rich deep color that will accent your firearm. All our holsters are sewn using seven cord bonded nylon thread and double stitched in all critical areas. The heavy weight construction also makes sure the holsters stay open when re-holstering. 

Each holster is then hand molded for a perfect fit. The edges are then sanded and hand burnished to a smooth glossy finish. This helps prevent moisture from entering the edges of the leather. They are then polished and finished with a clear coating to protect the finish. 

These gun holsters are made using heavy 9 oz. saddle leather and are fully leather lined. They feature 24 hand molded bullet loops in the Mexican loop pattern and come equipped with high quality solid steel and brass hardware. Our custom gun belts are built to last a lifetime.
