The company Abbeyhorn started editing horn in 1749. Today they make a great variety of products. Household stuff, jewellery, tools, walking sticks, almost everything you can think of is made by Abbeyhorn. One of the most popular products at Abbeyhorn is the shoehorn.
Abbeyhorn uses natural materials. Sourced ethically from renewable resources as waste product from the meat industry. Preventing the horns end up on several landfills. The majority of the finished products are biodegradable and recyclable. An ecological product you can say. Abbeyhorn uses Ankole Cattle from Nigeria while these animals have more room to roam in order to grow. Therefore the shape of the horns becomes ideal for the further editing process.
