Ankole Horn Mug
Ankole horn comes from a stunning African native breed of cattle known for their distinctive horns. The horns are some of the largest in the world and can reach up to eight 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.
Mix up cocktail hour with these ankole horn mugs to add a touch of uniqueness and endless compliments from your friends. Made from a single piece of cow horn, hand carved on a lathe, and then shaped and moulded 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 by fair-trade artisans in the Wakiso District in Uganda. The Ankole horns used are all ethically sourced.

Not recommended for hot drinks. Because this product is made of pure natural horn, special care is required. Mugs 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. Mugs are heat sensitive and should avoid direct sunlight as high temperature can cause the horn to crack or change in shape.
