Recycled Calado Necklace horn
This eco-friendly handmade horn ornament is made from natural discarded and recycled bull horn crafted by Peruvian artisans.
We challenged the artisans with the carving and designed together based on their technique, tradition, and tools experience. After boiled and melted, each unique piece has been hand cut, molded, carved, and polished to bring out the natural horn color and texture in a brilliant finish.
Every necklace is one of the kind due to the shade and variety of the natural color of the horn.
Production: Preparing to work the bull horn is arduous. All production was done in the suburban of Lima region of Peru.
Carbon Footprint: The production and transportation of this piece resulted in 9 pounds of CO2 emission, roughly equivalent to driving 10 miles in a car. This is a Carbon Zero product as its footprint has been offset through the purchase of carbon credits.
Each of our pieces is handmade by Hector, a talented Peruvian artisan. Having known him for years, we’re happy to build a working relationship on the spirit of fair trade and friendship. The price you pay assures a fair living wage for continue building his rudimentary workshop and for water and sewer system of his places.
