Made in Zimbabwe from cow horn and bone by an enterprising man called Joseph. He has invented a machine which helps him to carve and buff the horn and bone, bringing out the beauty of these natural materials and giving the earrings their polished finish. These designs are exclusive to Vagabond Van.
Check out The Vagabond Adventures' blog post for more information and photos from their visit.
