Semi-finished products in horn


We supply semi-finished products in Indian buffalo, African bovine and deer horn to companies in the fashion and home sectors, such as button factories, cutlery, eyewear, etc. We guarantee the delivery of semi-finished products prepared with craftsmanship and precision.

Versatile, precious, exclusive. With its chromatic nuances and inimitable natural veins, the horn processing requires great skill and manual sensitivity, which can only be acquired with many years of experience.

Naturally irregular and alive, the raw material tends to deform easily reacting to humidity and thermal changes of the environments; therefore it must be treated with extreme care and delicacy so that it assumes a uniform thickness without breaking or splintering.
70 years of specialization in craftsmanship, direct management of the entire production cycle and a highly qualified staff make Zanchi an excellence in the production of semi-finished products in real horn, with high quality standards and timely delivery.

What kind of service we offer for semi-finished products in horn

To respect the planet and the people involved in the production chain, the buffalo and ox horns we use are taken from unprotected species, at the end of the animal's life cycle.

In addition, the processing residuals are transformed in our Italian laboratories into fertilizers for organic farming, respecting the circular economy system.

We guarantee production processes able to enhance the natural characteristics of this noble material.

In addition to the accessories production - realized from our catalogue proposals or tailor made for clothing, leathergoods and jewellery industries, we sell the raw material (whole horns, hollow horns and horn tips) and we create semi-finished products in bovine, buffalo and deer horn for the cutlery and eyewear sectors, and for button factories.
Semi-finished products in horn

What kind of semi-finished products we realize

  • Horn plates: the plates production involves the use of a bandsaw to cut the whole raw horn, the subsequent hot pressing and the calibration phases to obtain the required thickness and colours.
  • Knife handles: the handles production involves the same processes as the plates ones, to which are added the laser cutting of the shape and its drilling.
  • Plates horn blanks:he African ox horn is selected according to the colour, to obtain the greatest number of hollow horns with the desired shades. We continue with a bandsaw cutting to create the sections suitable for the subsequent hot pressing phase. Once pressed, the plates are ready to be cut using cup cutters to obtain various button lines of hollow horns. This is followed by the calibration process using flattening machines, and the careful selection of the colours in seven shades.
  • Horn blanks stock: the horn blanks of Indian ox and buffalo and the horn and bone plates of Indian buffalo are subjected to an accurate quality control on the size, thickness and colour. Packaged and stored, they are then ready for sale. We have a stock of horn blanks ready for delivery of an average of 5 million units, in 20 different colours.
