Horn is a natural, regrowing resource and a byproduct of cattle farming. Most horns are shredded and turned into natural fertilizer. Exceptionally beautiful horns however become jewellery, weapons or objects of utility since the dawn of mankind.

horn jewellery is the perfect gift

Horn is very light, springy, formable and shows a beautiful, silky shine when polished properly. The natural grain makes every single item unique. Like a thousand years ago, our horn products are handmade in a tedious process step by step. Cutting, forming, sanding, polishing – so many steps are required to turn a raw horn into a lovely piece of jewellery. Fortunately nowadays some of our tools are electric.

horn is light and natural, a byproduct of cattle farming

Since in Europe most cattle gets de-horned after birth, the most beautiful horns come from Africa or South America. Some of our horns are from the domesticated Asian water buffalo Bubalus bubalis, an animal essential to Southeast Asian farmers quite like tractors are to ours.

For the reason of wildlife conservation, we don’t use horns from wild animals at Avanova.

Like our own hair and fingernails, your horn item loves some care from time to time. For that purpose, just use a drop of cooking oil and a soft piece of cloth to rub it down.
