This beautiful horn elements are carefully assembled on the bags, wallets and a variety of small leather goods creating elegant one of the kind pieces.

Every piece of horn comes in a different shade due to the natural property of this material. Each piece of horn element on our leather goods is made one by one, no two pieces will ever be the same. This represents the true uniqueness of every single piece. Cow horn is a by-product of the food industry, no animal is killed for obtaining the horn.
