Horn as we know is a natural
but precious, bio-degradable, non toxic, eco-friendly
medium. For ages there has been a tradition of producing fine
quality horn combs, cutlery, jewelry & buttons in and
around Calcutta. With the advent of plastic, the horn industry
had been hit hard.
At Hitaishi-KK we have
revived this traditional skill of horn craft
by retaining young craft persons with the help of experienced
master craftsmen and also with the introduction of new
technological skills from the craft centers in Europe.
Animals are not
killed to obtain this basic raw material. It is
collected from various abattoirs or from the already
dead animals. These wastes are conditioned and
recycled through various painstaking processes to produce the
finest horn raw material.

supply of good quality beautiful marbled Ox and
Buffalo horns (of Water Buffalo species). These are
