Did you know that reindeer antler is the fastest growing bone in the world? It can grow up to 2 centimeters and half a kilo per day! The antlers of reindeer stags grow faster than those of the does, and once dropped, they provide a valuable material for handicrafts.
A number of different, useful and decorative reindeer antler items are created and crafted at Santa Claus Village on the Arctic Circle. The elves—Santa’s little helpers—create jewelry, kitchenware, decorations, souvenirs and many of other products from this precious Lappish ingredient.
