Through fair trade practices and fair job opportunities in Uganda, Africa horn production has grown since 1985. Both women and men find employment in workshops in under-served areas of Kampala, the country's capital.

 

This particular variety of cow horn is a bi-product of food consumption and Ugandans have found a way to turn these once discarded items into beautiful and practical objects.

 

The outer layer of horn or shell, is separated from its inner material leaving only hollow horn. Each piece is sized and cut. The horn is then boiled, becoming malleable, and shaped in molds according to the end use. Once cooled, the horn hardens into its new shape. It is cleaned, extensively sanded and hand polished with wax and a polishing cloth. This intensive hand crafting yields a most beautiful and unique finished product.

 

These horn products are food safe.
