Product Details

These ethically sourced cow horn spoons make sugar scooping a little sweeter. Valued for both its hardness and its ability to become soft and pliable when heated, Ankole cattle horn has been used by East Africans for centuries. These natural horn spoons were were hand carved on a lathe, and then shaped and molded at high temperatures to fit perfectly in your hand. They were meticulously sanded and then polished for a smooth and shiny finish.

Due to the considerable size of Ankole horns and their wide range of naturally occurring colors, these spoons are truly one-of-a-kind; no two are exactly alike. Ankole cow horn is indigenous to East Africa, making this material extremely rare.

Each spoon is individually crafted from start to finish by an artisan in a fair trade environment in Uganda. Imperfections are expected and contribute to the uniqueness of your handmade good.

CARE: Because these natural spoons are made of pure horn, which is made up of keratin protein, there are special considerations for their proper care. Each spoon should be cleaned after use using only lukewarm water. They should never be left soaking or placed in a dishwasher, but rather should be dried immediately using a soft cloth. If immersed in water for too long, they could potentially give off a natural sulphur smell, which should dissipate once they are dry and over time with use. It is important to avoid leaving your horn items near heat sources or in direct sunlight, as warm temperatures can cause the horn to dry out or change shape.
