LEAH HORN BANGLE
LEAH HORN BANGLE
Independent artisans often speak of slow fashion - designers who build their brands upon sustainable, eco-friendly and ethical practices; but slow fashion also represents timeless, quality fashion. Expertly crafted, staple pieces that you wear time and time again, across all seasons and many occasions.
Josanne Mark thinks of the horn collection as the embodiment of slow fashion! Socially conscious, casual luxury that combines a little bit of edginess with a little bit of boho chic.
The horns used in her designs are ethically harvested from the domestic Asian water buffalo. At least 130 million domestic water buffalo exist, and more people depend on them than on any other domestic animal. The animals spend their lives working in agricultural fields in the remote parts or South Asia and are a prized resource for villagers who depend on agriculture to survive.
When they expire, nothing goes to waste! Everything from the meat and hides, to the bones and horns are used for something. Thus, the sale of the horns provide an income for many people.
As a designer and as a producer, Josanne believes she has a duty to the next generation, to do her part in contributing to sustainable living. It brings her great pleasure to create with this material.
