I hope to purchase small carved reindeer antler weaving tools (heddles, shuttles) in Latvia. Will I be able to bring those back to the US? I will be in Russia and Europe between Latvia and the US. Will I encounter customs issues in Russia or the EU?


As far as I know reindeer are not a species listed as endangered and protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) and in that regard you should not have any problems when traveling with some personal horn souvenirs made from reindeer antlers.
