Benefits of Wood? : Wooden combs and accessories help to reduce anti static, breakage and damage to hair, unlike plastic and metal. The porous nature of wood absorbs and redistributes your natural oils and maintains healthy hair continuously through your wash cycle. Wooden tips also gently massage your skin, stimulating blood flow which over time promotes hair growth. View our shop here to explore our whole collection.

Wood is only a renewable and eco-friendly material if it is consciously sourced. Tropical hardwoods in particular grow very slowly and in low densities, and regenerate poorly after logging. These species are often taken from forests in non-sustainable numbers, and illegal ways.
Searching for a way of sourcing wood sustainably, SAYA Designs came across Made & Ways, sculptors who dig up and recycle root wood from old commercial plantations all across Indonesia. The roots are left behind by loggers harvesting trees on large-scale production sites. They take hundreds of years to decompose and have little value for the soil.
By using this waste material we are having as little impact on the environment as possible.
