African Wooden Comb

Hair combs were used in traditional African communities as a symbol of social status. By keeping a woman's hair well kept and coiffed, this demonstrated she did not carry freight on her head and was therefore a sign of wealth. Considered a luxury, combs featured various elaborate designs and many become treasured items that were passed down through the generations.
