Mason Pearson Combs are manufactured in Switzerland by a contract manufacturing facility that ONLY makes combs. The same, strict, quality control standards followed in their brush making are applied to their combs.
Mason Pearson combs are Hand Made from the finest celluloid material in the world. This is the same material used to make designer costume jewelry, hair ornaments, and eyewear. Look carefully at the “tortoise” pattern of their combs. You will notice, the “3D’ effect of the “shell” pattern. This is the result of an internationally patented process that replicates natural tortoise shell. The “plastic” comes to the factory in Switzerland from Italy in a sheet, where it is die-cut into the general shapes of the comb styles. From that point, until the comb is finished, everything is done by hand. Each tooth is cut, one at a time, on a special saw. The comb is then tumbled in a polishing drum to smooth the surface. The next step is hand polishing to remove all burrs, sharp edges, and surface imperfections. Finally, it is buffed to create the high gloss finish.
- The Rake Comb is an extra-wide toothed comb generally used for very thick, curly or tightly permed hair for combing through and encouraging “lift”.
Made in Switzerland.
The Rake Comb measures 6" long by 2.5" wide.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Mason Pearson, an engineer and inventor during the industrial revolution, worked at the British Steam Brush Works in London and later joined a partnership that was in the business of small brush making, which was done by hand. He used this experience to invent an automatic brush-boring machine that would speed up the process of brush making. The business became a family business, with his wife and later their son taking over the business.
Due to health & safety standards we cannot accept returns on combs or brushes.
