If we go to the Metropolitan or any other museum with a large collection or exhibition on Impressionism, we get to see paintings by Degas and Renoir portraying women brushing their hair or having it brushed by someone else. They remind us of times when this was a daily beauty ritual. We do not brush our hair that much these days. What a pity: neither Degas nor Renoir could paint us a portrait. However, this is one of the easiest and most grateful gestures of beauty care that we can do. By brushing the hair we remove dust and dirt and stimulate the scalp, and the result is shinier cleaner, healthier hair.
It is advisable however to use a good brush. This is what this Italian brand proposes. TEK was founded from an idea by Giulio Valsecchi: a brush with wooden bristles. That was not so common in the 70s. TEK brushes have been exhibited at MoMA in New York, which gives us clues as to what design was about to back then.
Every single component of Tek’s wooden products is created following sustainable principles. Rigorously made by hand and in Italy, Tek’s products are certified FSC®, Forest Stewardship Council®, a mark that identifies products which contain wood coming from forests managed correctly and responsibly. They also use natural caucciù rubber to avoid oil derivative. Everything is manufactured in high quality and particular attention is paid to design and trend.
