Triple Canopy

Triple Canopy's 'She goes covered' is a fascinating article that I found through Etsy- it tells you all about wig makers and the human hair trade. I love learning about these very specialised aspects of our society that often go unremarked and unacknowledged.
It also reminded me of how little we realise the strange journey that a lot of the products we see around us have made- the wig Beyonce is wearing on stage started out as long hair cut from a woman in a small village in Peru.

Following the global hair trade, from the braid-laden Peruvian highlands to the sheitel machers of Borough Park.
