5.75" Tutia Hairstick | Purple Dyed Birch + Bamboo


Top Width: 0.25"

Bottom Width: 0.125"


Johi's original hairsticks are made from the scraps of our Classics Collection Kuahiwi Handplane. The first ones had a top layer of purple or orange - and when finished, the hairsticks reminded us of the red pūnohu or Red Slate Pencil Urchins' spines that we see here in Hawai'i's waters. We settled instead on another name for sea urchins -Tutia, from Arabic.


The Tutia have grown to include various veneer layers & solid wood (still originating from our bodysurfing handplanes). Tutia with hardwood curl "flowers" - both natural and dyed - are strengthened with a stiffening spray for easier (yet still gentle) handling.
