Falta Envido

Naipes Argentinos para Truco “Falta Envido” created by the artist Alberto Soifer and printed by Adans S.A., Buenos Aires, 1982. The set has Gaucho themed court cards (images repeated in each suit with different colours) and suit symbols based on Gaucho life: bolas or boleadoras (three leather bound rocks tied with long leather straps), a facón (large knife), a cup for drinking yerba mate (a beverage made from the leaves of the yerba tree, a type of holly rich in caffeine and nutrients) and tabas, bones for playing games. The typical gaucho outfit includes a poncho (which doubled as saddle blanket and sleeping gear), loose-fitting trousers called bombachas, belted with a tirador, or a chiripá, and a loincloth.
