Hand carved by skilled craftsman in England, the company we work with to produce our horn products have been working with this natural material for 250 years. Only a horner with years of experience is able to shape the softened horn by hand, presses and moulds, using techniques that man has used for centuries.
British domestic cattle have been selectively bred so they no longer grow horns, so the team at The Merchant Fox is now on a determined drive to source horn from breeders of long horn cattle in the UK.
