About Buck Wild (https://www.buckwildrags.com) :
Hi there! My name is Sharon and I am Buck Wild! My story begins in 2010 when my daughter, Sarah, suggested I sew some wild rags for a local charity ranch rodeo. I thought she was crazy as it had been 20 years since I last made any wild rags for my girls. But, it wasn’t too long before my creativity was jump started into high gear and I began sewing and shipping my “beauties” all over the country!
I have always had a love for agriculture and livestock. I am a huge advocate of 4-H, FFA and Junior Rodeo. I have raised all my children with this same passion for what makes this country strong ~ An honest day’s work for an honest day’s dollar. Some of the very best people I know make their living riding horseback and a business deal is always sealed with a handshake, not a contract~ The Code of the West.
My grandmother taught me how to sew at the age of 9, and quite honestly, I have been sitting behind a sewing machine ever since. I love the thrill of the hunt when looking for that perfect fabric design! I pride myself in the selection of Non Traditional Wild Rag fabrics. Ask any of my customers and they will tell you my favorite saying while out on the road selling my rags…”Life’s too short for a solid colored wild rag!” I hope you enjoy browsing through my creations and selections as much as I enjoy selecting them and sewing them.
History of the Wild Rag

They come in a wide variety of COLORS, sizes, and fabrics, with silk and polyester being some of the most popular fabric choices. Wild Rags date back as far as the mid 1800’s. Cowboys were known to use old flour sacks cut into squares when fabric such as a cotton was either too expensive are hard to come by while living on the range.
