Our horns & materials
Our Up-cycled Buffalo Horns
At Hathorway, we selected horn as our primary material to create our jewelry and accessories for many reasons.
A byproduct of waste
Advocating for zero-waste, Hathorway ethically-source buffalo horns that are discarded from the food industry & deadstock in Vietnam. As a sign of respect to the buffalo, nothing of the creature is wasted.
To prevent pollution, no chemicals are used, nor is it made with a process that is harmful to our environment. Using only heat and oil, the horns are flattened into plates, then cut, and polished with using water.
An organic material
As an eco-friendly material with high mineral nitrogen, all our excess horn shavings produced during the creation of our pieces are used as soil fertilizer for the rice fields in Vietnam. Thus, providing rice crops to feed people and other buffalos.
Every horn piece is one-of-a-kind. Each possesses its own exquisite colors and patterns variation from various shades of lustrous milk, caramel, and charcoal colors in various levels of lucency.
Horn color guide
Our horns come from various cows and buffaloes that are a byproducts of the food and agricultural sector in Vietnam. Because it is an organic material, these horns are beautifully unique for its natural color and pattern variations.
Our cream and milk-colored horns come with white flecks and snow-color gradiation that almost looks like shell or white agate stone.
Our honey and tan horns can come in a solid color with different levels of translucency that could resemble caramel candy or warm amber stones. These color horns will come with various white or brown flecks.

At Hathorway, we selected horn as our primary material to create our jewelry and accessories, because they possess the most gorgeous textures and patterns, as well they are eco-friendly and naturally sustainable for our planet. Similarly to our very own skin, nails and hair, your horn jewelry do need a bit of care because they are organic:
- Dab a small amount of pure jojoba oil (a organic botanical extract of the seed of the jojoba tree) on a soft cloth. The jojoba oil will enhance your horn color and will add a bit of shine back to your horn jewelry. As well, it will hide any scratches or imperfection.
- Polish your horn jewelry in a circular motion with your soft cloth and wipe clean.
- When not being worn, store your horn jewelry in a cloth bag to avoid exposure to excessive moisture or sunlight.
