French Horn Wide Tooth Comb
Availability: Available Late October
Wide Tooth Horn CombThere are no gentler nor more luxurious combs for your hair than those in our collection. Rich in keratin, the same material as your hair and fingernails, horn combs produce no static electricity. Satiny smooth and sensual to the touch, they glide effortlessly through the hair.
Nearly a lost art in this plastic age of ours, the working of horn is a kept alive by a handful of European artisans. Since the earliest times, man has made combs and utensils from horn - malleable when heated, hard enough to create durable, long lasting tools.
Our horn combs are crafted by artisans in the French town of Campredon - perhaps the last such masters in what was once the European capital of horn working. The artisans heat raw horn over open flame to a plastic consistency. Flattened and smoothed, the horn is then shaped. Cutting the teeth is especially intricate - great care is taken to ensure strength, consistency and comfort. Finally, each comb is sanded, polished and buffed, no two exactly alike in color or pattern. Each delivered to you in a hand-sewn, red calfskin case.
The Wide Tooth Comb is ideal for thick hair, or curls. Measures 2.5" x 3.5".
