The Rad: Hand-cast from brass, each cuff is a unique piece. Individually crafted by the artisan using reclaimed brass and upcycled materials.
Handcrafted from recycled brass and ethically sourced horn by artisans in Kenya using traditional techniques. Materials: Brass and ethically sourced upcycled horn. Size: Internal diameter - 2.2" As this product is handmade, each is one of a kind and may vary slightly. Product Care: - Treat it with love: Remove jewellery before participating in physical activity or going to bed. - Prolong its life: Store your jewellery in a cloth bag away from natural sunlight and heat. - Keep it shiny: Use a gentle metal polisher and a soft cloth to remove any tarnish and restore lustre. - Keep away from water: Materials don't mix well with moisture. Avoid contact with water, lotion and perfume. Since brass is a natural alloy it will gradually patina over time with exposure to oxygen and moisture. If you prefer a bright sheen, this effect can be achieved with a quick polish. All Soko's pieces can be polished with a brass cleaner and a soft cloth or paper towel. To clean using ingredients you may already have at home, mix lemon juice and baking soda into a paste, rub onto the surface with a cloth, then rinse off and buff dry to shine.
All of our cow-horn products are crafted from the horn of Ankole Longhorn cattle, a breed native to the Rift Valley of East Africa. Soko artisans ethically procure this recycled material, which is a byproduct of the food industry, from nomadic tribes in Kenya and Uganda. Reclaimed horn has gorgeous natural variation in its colour, so every piece is individual as a result and can range from a dark lustrous black to striated natural tones.
