FrontRunners: Wear The Buffalo Bone

According to Ralph Anderl of Onono (215.238.8804), buffalo horn can be a brittle substance on which to base a business. “It is a very sensitive material,” says Anderl, whose new eyewear line features rims made of horn from buffalo that have died of natural causes. “Each piece has to age for five to 10 years before it is dry enough to work with, so this isn’t something that can be mass produced.”

Indeed, each pair of Onono eyeglasses requires three months to assemble at the company’s Cologne, Germany, workshop. The collection consists of 12 frames available in three colors ($1,750 to $2,600), and Onono encloses the made-to-order glasses in equally original macassar-ebony cases.
