About Abbeyhorn

In 1749 The Humpherson family founded the horn works in Bewdley, when horn carving was prolific. Working techniques have changed very little over the centuries, it is one of the things that defines Abbeyhorn – "handmade using traditional techniques". All raw materials are sourced from ethical sources, as a by-product which could otherwise be wasted.

The business is now happily settled in the little Village of Holme, in the heart of Northern England just on the cusp of the Lake District. It has produced props for Vikings, Harry Potter, and Game of Thrones.
