    Cartier Buffalo Horn

    About Buffalo Horn

    As a jeweler of eyewear, Cartier applies the same procedures as with its jewelry pieces. Cartier's craftsman-like approach places the material at the heart of the creative process.

    The buffalo horn material is a rather exclusive feature of Cartier eyewear. What we specifically admire about the buffalo horn material is how the buffalo horn adds an unparalleled uniqueness to the frame in addition to enhancing the overall style.


    According to the international convention on protected species, the buffalo horn is only removed from domestic animals. It can measure up to one meter, but only a small portion of the horn meets Cartier’s criteria for quality and aesthetics. The construction of thin strips layered crosswise ensures high quality, warp resistance, and frame stability. Because Cartier horn frames are not varnished, they can be re-polished over time.

    Now, the buffalo horn has more usage than simply serving as eye elegance. This is an ultra-light material, the lightest of all the materials that can be used in sunglass and optical frames, which makes it such a rarity. This is essential in preventing the bulky and cumbersome feeling on your face. These airy frames leave your nose feeling weight-free while still offering the protective lens coating you desire.


    No other frame material has the warmth and feel of buffalo horn. The exotic look and feel of horn is what many frame designers try to achieve with acetate. The buffalo horn's distinctive designs are for men and women looking for contemporary eyewear that is refined, striking, and unique. It's one of the finest materials in eyewear, and the craftsmanship is impeccable.
