Welcome to the world of Abbeyhorn, please come and visit our stand DP1-C48 to see the amazing things we can produce from Horn.
We are the last remaining horn works of our size in the UK, and we can trace our roots back to the 17th Century when the art of horn carving was prolific. Today’s Artisans still use these traditional skills, handed down over generations, to produce a unique range of natural and appealing gifts.
Paul, Abbeyhorn's owner, started as an apprentice Horn Carver back in 1980, he loved the company so much that he bought it in 1991 and moved us from Kendal, to the little village of Holme on the cusp of the Lake District. We have 9 Horn crafts people in our on-site factory, 1 member of staff in the packing room, 2 ladies in the Office and Paul the Owner/Director.
Abbeyhorn is very proud to source our raw materials from ethical sources. The Ankole Cow Horn is a by-product of the meat industry in Nigeria, and our Antler comes from a herd of Red Deer in Scotland which is collected by hand when they shed them between April and June. These horns would just be discarded, so instead we hand make them into beautiful individual gifts and homeware. No two pieces of horn are ever the same in colouration or size, so every piece we produce is unique.
Over the years Abbeyhorn has produced props for several films and TV programs and are very proud to be the official manufacturer of the Horn mugs seen on the cult series “Game Of Thrones”, and the horn cups for “Vikings”. “How it’s made” recently filmed in our factory and this will go live at the end of April.
Abbeyhorn has an extensive range from the traditional to the unusual and are always looking for new ideas to extend the collection. This year we would like to showcase our New Oak Shoe Brushes, Cashmere Brush and Horn Drinks Stirrers, along side our extensive Male Grooming Range and our traditional Shoehorn’s.
So please pop along to meet Paul, Tracey and Marianne and discover our stunning range of unique gifts.
