Elegant viking style? These cocktail mugs will certainly add a touch of difference when enjoying drinks with friends, regardless of your viewing pleasure. Made from Ankole cow horn the variations in colour of the horn used in these sets of mugs, create a unique and interesting finish.

The mugs are made of a single piece of cow horn. Initially hand carved on a lathe, and then shaped and moulded at high temperatures to make a handle that will fit perfectly in your hand.

Due to the considerable size of Ankole horns and their wide range of naturally occurring colours, these mugs are truly one-of-a-kind; no two will ever be exactly alike. This horn is sourced ethically and is a by-product of the food and leather industry. No animal is killed to harvest this resource. The majority of our horn products are biodegradable and/or recyclable, making them a truly ecological product. 

Each mug is individually hand-crafted by an artisan in a fair trade environment in Uganda and would make the perfect gift for these seeking something that little bit different. Imperfections should be expected and simply add to the charm of your handmade good.

Impact 

The manufacture of our horn products benefits both people and planet; through the reduction of waste and pollution, with income generation for local Ugandan people through the resulting horn crafting industry. 

Recognising the horns natural beauty, and its valuable properties of being both durable and malleable when heated, will hopefully ensure the survival of these magnificent creatures which are currently being cross-bred into extinction.
