These bangles are made from water buffalo horn and come from Faire Collection's Vietnam artisan group. The water buffalo are like cattle to their native area and when harvested the horn would typically be tossed aside. Not so in Vietnam, these horns are salvaged and cut down from the base to the tip to create bangles, bracelets, necklaces and earrings; they are fused with paint through a special process that brings a pop of color to the natural splendor of the horn. The owner of the company learned these trade secrets from his family. He was discovered by the Faire Trade program that has partnered with him in order to create employment and healthcare opportunities in the area. Each individual is provided the opportunity to start and gradually move through the ranks to support themselves and their families and are provided with a living wage from day one. These are wonderful as a statement piece and in turn, make a statement themselves in the lives of the artisans who create them
