This unique, hand-crafted horn product is sustainably made from the horns of the Ankole-Watusi, or Ankole Longhorn, a breed of cattle native to western Uganda and parts of East Africa. These distinctive horns are a recycled byproduct of the food industry and are purchased directly from the cattle keepers, providing revenue for local cattle keeping communities. The horn is then hand carved and polished according to Maadili designs by a small scale artisan community.
Sustainably sourced horn from rural Ugandan cattle keepers, horn is used and upcycled instead of wasted
Hand carved in small scale, Fair Trade artisan cooperative in Uganda
