Curry spoon in sustainable cow horn
I adore these lovely serving spoons made in Madagascar. They are hand made by local artisans from zebu horn. The colourings are beautiful and they are practical too ... you can wash them by hand.
The Malagasy crafters use their ancestral skills to work this material, a by-product of the zebu. They heat each piece to allow them to coax and mould it into their desired form. Horn, know for its resistance and fine structure, has a density and hardness superieur to many woods. The zebu itself is, it goes without saying, not an endangered species, and ranges free in its natural environment.
As the material used is variable in colour and tone, each product has a unique colour variation, and the photo is a guideline only.
