These vases made from Ankole horns are all uniquely beautiful and remind me of long summers on a ranch dreaming of being a cowboy.

These incredible Ankole vases are made from the horns of cattle in Uganda in East Africa and are sourced from Uganda by Bobby Mickler and his wife, Downie. While working in East Africa in 2012 Bobby noticed an enormous pile of Ankole cow horns left outside the stockyard. Surprised to see the horns discarded he decided to try and repurpose them somehow and create jobs and stimulate economic growth in the area. Due to the fact that every animal is different each and every vase is unique. Buffed with a non toxic wax the colors glow in the light and when flowers are placed in the vase it becomes a statement piece. If possible  we recommend putting a plastic or glass container inside it to prevent any water damage that may occur as horns can be slightly porous. The Imani vase is also perfect for candles, kitchen utensils and so much more.  Hand wash only, to make sure your vase lasts a lifetime. Available in various sizes and colors.
