Suited For Your Hair Type? | The Tapioca hair stick specifically suits the longest and thickest of hair types. It’s large upper body and long length allows it to support and hold a lot of hair. The indentation at the top of the hair stick is designed to hook and help secure hair in place. Each wood variation will compliment individual hair colours, either by choosing a wood type with opposing tones or similar ones. See our tutorials page for ideas.
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.

Craftsmanship | All our collections are uniquely designed, inspired by local flora and fauna in Indonesia. The process from rough-cut waste to hand-polished combs and forks are made by our artisans in Indonesia, creating truly one-of-a-kind pieces everytime. They are unique from the details in their shape and in the grains of the wood. All of our accessories are hand carved from waste offcuts left over from plantations in Indonesia.
Inspired by Nature | The design is based on the leaves and branches of the cassava plant, from which tapioca is derived. Cassava is a staple root vegetable in many South American and South Asian countries, including Indonesia. The roots can be used to manufacture many biodegradable products, and its resin has been found to be a viable plastic substitute that is renewable, reusable, recyclable and sustainable.
Recyclable Packaging | Your piece will arrive in a fully recyclable mailer bag with a recyclable box and protective fabric sleeve to keep it safe when traveling. The box is handmade from papaya fruit pulp and vegetable inks. Once used, you can place it in the food compost.
