Orange earth, warm temperatures, wild animals and rich cultures. Africa is a great inspiration source for interior design. Typical for the African style are the natural materials crafts like: petrified wood, bones, pottery, horn and wooden masks. This post is devoted to the African secrets of horn!
Horn. One of those natural wonders that radiates a powerful and strong look-and-feel. Bear in mind the huge buffalos and you’ll know where we’re talking about…But what makes this material so unique?
Horn is a very difficult material to process. It needs to be heated, sawed or grated. This amazing robust piece is incredibly strong and hard. Crafting items of horn is therefore exclusive and high end. Especially for interior design use. It’s Africa in its purest form. An unique piece of art which can be used in any decorating style.
Horn is only relied for highly skilled and experienced people. Cravt Original, an interior design brand that is experienced in natural materials crafts, explains: “They represent over 400 years of tradition, but to reach the status of ‘skilled artisan’ they must literally grab the bull by the horns and work hard to reach their goal.”
Horn design objects are very durable. This material is so strong due to layering, plus the main ingredient of horn; keratine. You’ll keep a horn crafted object for a lifetime, so enjoy your good investment!
