This hundred-year-old craft of making gorgeously carved wooden combs is practiced by the Banjaras or gypsies of India. Using Sheesham, Babul, kadam, ker, ber and neem wood these gypsy artisans create two-sided combs with fine and wide teeth. Floral designs and animal shapes are also carved into the handles. Some combs are carved into a fish shape. The artists use the most rudimentary hammer, chisel and knives to fashion these charming wood craft artifacts. The number of artist who practice this craft is slowly dwindling.
