  • NEW EXHIBITOR! ANKOLE DESIGNS 

    USES SALVAGED, REPURPOSED NATURAL ANKOLE HORN FROM EAST AFRICA TO CREATE FUNCTIONAL ART PIECES FOR TRANSITIONAL INTERIORS

    San Antonio, Texas

    12/30/17

    Ankole Designs features new designs and ways to use natural horn in transitional spaces.  The classy new exhibitor is making a stir with their statement pieces - striking natural polished Ankole horns on heavy lucite bases.  Also featured in their booth will be beautiful food safe housewares and utensils, lamps and jewelry all made of the extremely durable Ankole cow horn.  

    Ankole Designs purchases their horn from East African stockyards at a fair price. The horn is a by-product of the beef industry. Each pair of Ankole horns has its own distinct shape, coloring, height, and width. Every horn must be dried, extensively cleaned, cut, sanded, and polished with a non-toxic wax by local people in Uganda. This process takes between 3 to 4 months before the piece is ready to fix to another material.  

    Housewares are made with pieces of the salvaged horn.  To manipulate the horn’s shape, it is submerged in boiling natural oil from local shea butter to make it soft and malleable. The piece of horn is then pressed into a weighty mould to create a beautiful, functional bowl or tray.
