‘Exceptional moments don’t happen every day, but they do change your every day.’

Ankole is a breed of cattle native to sub-Saharan Africa and in Uganda, they take their name from the tribe that raises them. Their curved horns can reach up to eight feet in length, growing in graceful arcs high off the ground. Ankole horn is reliably sourced because it’s a local product. It’s a point of pride for Ugandan artisans to work with not only for its beauty and variability, but also because it introduces the uniqueness of their country to the rest of the world.

New uses for the unique horns are improving the economic value of this culturally significant breed, helping ranchers to preserve clean indigenous herds for future generations. The horn helps to sustainably grow the local economy. It’s known for unique and beautiful variations in colour ranging from ivory black to caramel and creamy white. Stripes and solids intermix for an exotic finish and like fingerprints, no two polished pieces are alike. Lightweight yet durable, Ankole horn is fascinating and will start conversations at any gathering.

Voice International empowers women in Uganda through creative and sustainable employment enabling them to rise above the poverty line. Each piece of their beautiful, ethical jewellery holds a story. Every unique work of art has the artisans name on the display card along with their hopes and dreams for the future.
