Water buffalo are an integral part of Vietnam’s traditional village farming structure. They provide 20-40% of the farm power in Southeast Asia. They have been domesticated for over 5,000 years. When a Water Buffalo dies, every part of the animal is used, and the horn is often turned into beautiful and functional objects. These horn products are hand-crafted. Each is unique in its coloring and shape. We are proud that we encourage the artisans we buy from to continue using this traditional and sustainable practice in creating these beautiful pieces.
