"Embellishments from Africa."
Village artisans use discarded horn from domestic cattle to craft these extraordinary shawl pins. The importer assures us that these elegant embellishments are imported following all current protected-species regulations.
With these lovely pins, you're not only not only adding a touch of beauty to your knitted pieces, you're also supporting an emerging economy in a developing country.
Please note that each piece is one-of-a-kind and may not look exactly like the image in the photo due to natural color variations in the horn. Not only that, but your pin's color will vary as you move through different light!
Clean with unscented soap and water. An occasional light coat of oil will keep these natural gems looking tip-top.
