Ramstein Horn means 100% Swiss.
Twenty designs made from buffalo horn, designed by our employees and manufactured in Aargau.
Buffalo horn is a comfortable, light and hypoallergenic material.
In the manufacture of spectacles, buffalo horns are sawn into thin plates. These are pressed together in batches in alternating directions under pressure and steam in order to guarantee a dimensionally stable, solid output material. In addition, today’s technology also facilitates parallel layering with other natural products. Spectacle frames and arms are then sawn out and polished. Once the parts are perfectly polished, the rich, gently lustrous colours ranging from jet black to honey yellow and from olive brown to amber to milky white appear – these are unique and varied in their combination for every spectacle frame.
