...Once upon a penguin... all began in the autumn of 2005 with a little bit of vanity...

There was a desire for more hair than nature will grow, more than can be achieved through sheer length or clever cuts. What I wanted was a forest, a mountain of hair. If it cannot be real, then it will be fake, and so be it.

Each hair & each pair of hairs, every clip & every pin is carefully made by hand.

Every detail is intended to make for the most long-lived accessory, from the tight knotwork to the chamfered ribbon ends.

Through persistent trial and plenty of error, a fabrication method was found, which seems minimise tangling at the band, unravelling of fibers, and all the annoying little surprises which arise in the course of such an adventure.

Silky hairs are quite a bother to work with on the manufacture end, and will take something of a care & upkeep commitment on the use end.

The clip-type hairs were a later experiment, but not entirely unfamiliar territory.
