Animal-Friendly Antlers for the Holidays

We often read that decorative objects harvested from animals were created in a humane way: using antlers that are shed naturally, sheepskin that’s a byproduct of the sustainable meat industry, and so on. We like to believe what we read, but when in doubt, we also like alternatives. Take these animal-friendly antlers made from lime wood for UK store Rowen & Wren, for instance.

Above: The Hand Carved Lime Wood Antlers are £68 each from Rowen & Wren, who ship within the UK, across Europe, and to the US.

Above: Hung with an ornament or two, the wooden antlers become holiday decor; shown here are Rowen & Wren’s Elvie Ceramic Pinecone Decorations£11 for two.

Above: The pale lime wood matches the chalk-white-painted mount, which hangs from a pair of stealth hooks. The design measure 13 inches high and about 16 inches wide.
