Ankole Horn Tumbler Set

$75.00

Art meets functional. Use this versatile piece to serve drinks, as a pencil holder to dress up an office space or in the bathroom. Made from a single piece of cow horn, hand-carved on a lathe, and then shape and molded at high temperature to mimic the natural curve of the horn. Each piece is meticulously sanded, polished, and then applied a beautiful smooth matte seal.

Description

Our ankole horn tumbler sets are ethically sourced (a food by product) and handmade in a fair-trade environment by a team of in-house artisans at a design-and-craft studio in Kampala, Uganda.

Ankole horn comes from a stunning African native breed of cattle known for their distinctive horns. Sourced only in East Africa, the horns are some of the largest in the world and can reach up to 8 feet. Every horn is unique in their beautiful color variations from light to dark with stripes of ivory, black and brown. There are no two horns that are identical which makes every single one of these rare in its own way.

Care

Not recommended for hot liquids. Because this product is made of pure natural horn, special care is required. Tumblers are not dishwasher safe and should be hand-washed with lukewarm water after use and dried immediately with a soft cloth. This product also should not be left soaking in water. Tumblers are heat sensitive and should avoid direct sunlight as high temperatures can cause the horn to crack or change in shape.
