Why Wear Buffalo Horn Jewelry & Accessories?
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.
