The asian buffalo or water buffalo is so integrated to the rural way of life in Vietnam that it is one of the emblems.
The buffalo live in high humidity areas. This is a domestic animal traditionally used for plowing the rice fields.
As for beef, the meat is very popular.
The buffalo is mainly black but there are also clear varieties.
The zebu horn is also used for its rendering marbled.
The objects are coming out from handicrafts, hand-made, with genuine horn.
No animals are killed or maimed for this. Such as leather, horn is recovered from uneaten parts of the animal.
The horn is a natural product and does not support heat. Do not put in the dishwasher, oven or microwave.
