The eye catching Ankole Buni Split Horn Tray: Buni means “to build” in Swahili. Local artisans craft these scoop shaped trays from genuine Ankole horn found in Uganda.

While working in East Africa in 2012 Bobby Mickler noticed an enormous pile of local cow horns left outside the stockyard. Surprised, Bobby and his wife, Downie decided to work with the locals and re-purpose them thereby creating jobs and stimulating economic growth in the area. Of course the horns are in limited supply and availability will become more limited in time.

The trays are beautiful, functional art pieces and come in varying colors that highlight the natural beauty of the the material.

Food safe and handwash only, do not submerge in water, do not use in microwave or oven.

Available in varying sizes these trays can be purchased in light or dark colors. Coloring and tones vary.

Please allow 2 weeks for delivery.
