Made in New Zealand

Traditionally, heru (comb) were often carved from a single piece of wood, whale bone or wooden prongs bound together and worn by Maori men to fasten their long hair into a top knot. Heru indicated the rank of the wearer. Today, heru is worn by both Maori men and women and most commonly at kapa haka performances.
