Four Piece Family Horn Comb Set There 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 this set of four french 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. Set contains: Pocket Comb, Dresser Comb with Handle, Purse Comb, Large Dresser Comb.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
