Handcarved in Kenya, this ethnic wooden comb is a fascinating piece of African tribal culture.

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.

This African comb would be a lovely addition to your home or collection!

As this item is Individually handcrafted, minor imperfections should be expected and enjoyed.
