About Buffalo horn
A unique and beautiful product, it has many advantages: it is completely hypoallergenic and also lighter and stronger than acetate, making it the premium choice for those seeking a frame that is gentler and kinder to their skin.
Buffalo horn will slowly from the warmth of your skin, mould to your face shape over time
We obtain our horn ethically from sustainably farmed resources in Vietnam. Specifically from non-endangered domestic animals that also supply milk and leather, making the horn used in Moonshine frames a natural by-product.
Horn has been used for a really long time to produce both spectacles and sunglasses. The discovery of low cost plastics saw the popularity of horn decrease.
Only now with the growing realisation that plastics are intrinsically bad for our environment and wellbeing, are we beginning to turn back to natures own superior alternatives.
