This strong handcrafted hair pin is made from Purpleheart wood. It has a dark grain pattern and a deep purple hue. The gentle contours of the piece make it very tactile to hold and firm when in use. The tone of the pin may darken further with age.
Purpleheart is a very strong wood from south America. It is perfect for making small slender hair pins. This piece was left over from a local carpentry workshop. It is one of my favourite woods to work with.
