Collection: Ankole-Watusi Cow Horn Vessels, Vases & Tea Lights

In line with a commitment to sustainability, these items were crafted with conservation and the preservation of African wildlife in mind. There are no endangered or threatened animals to be found in this collection; only animal products provided from registered suppliers regulated by nature conservation agencies. Hides, skulls and horns are the by-product of a conservation process called "culling", whereby surplus animals in nature reserves are killed and removed for the purpose of maintaining an appropriate ecological balance of species. No animal has been hunted for its hide or horns – they are always the aftereffect of death in the wild or from a legislated and permit-driven cull that is managed by the South African government.
