Ankole Horn Cocktail Mug - set of two

Ankole Horn Cocktail Mug - set of two


These cocktail mugs will add a touch of difference when enjoying drinks with friends. Made from Ankole cow horn indigenous to Uganda, this horn is a waste material from the cattle industry. 

These 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 fit perfectly in your hand. They were meticulously sanded, polished, and then sealed with a food-safe lacquer for a smooth and shiny finish. 

Due to the considerable size of Ankole horns and their wide range of naturally occurring colors, these mugs are truly one-of-a-kind; no two will ever be exactly alike. 

Each tumbler 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.


Material: Ankole Cow Horn

Size: 7-8cm diameter x 8-9cm height (approx)

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.
