A unique handcrafted hair fork made from Mahogany (Sapele). This piece has three prongs with a rich reddish hue and a lustrous grain. A single knot at the top opens out to a smooth finish along the rest of the piece.
Sapele Mahogany comes from West, Central and East Africa. It is often used in furniture and cabinet making and as a veneer for marquetry. It is also used in the construction of musical instruments, for building boats and as a flooring material. This piece arrived in its previous life as offcuts of flooring that would have otherwise been thrown away or burnt. I'm looking forward to seeing what other surprises this beautiful premium hardwood has in store.
This pin is finished with Nutshell wax. The product is eco friendly and non toxic, blending selected beeswax, Larch oil and essential oils to give your hairpin years of protection. It also uses no VOC's, formaldehyde or petrochemicals.
