Description

By Preserving Afro hair and using it as a decorative element the “Miliona” comb symbolizes black beauty. It is Inspired by a woman named Miliona (1000 000). Growing up predominantly in a “white” neighborhood Miliona used to relax her hair to fit in and look like her mates. Today she wants to look her authentic self and inspire her students to embrace their natural looks.

Every comb is handmade and varies in expression due to the molding process where hair is incorporated with resin.

The Miliona comb is one of eight in the Afropicks collection

Profile Photo
Simon Skinner
Simon Skinner is a young Swedish designer based in Stockholm. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design from Konstfack University 2018. His work offers new ways to approach norms and cultures in a sustainable way. Playfulness and curiosity is the core in Simon Skinners approach to design. As a mixed race Swede with Afro-Caribbean roots Simon Skinner is inspired to investigate the identity among people living in between different cultures at the same time. This often becomes a fusion where values, functions and expressions are being mixed in to everyday objects. His latest project Afropicks (winner of the Young Swedish Design Awards) highlights the need of afro hair combs and puts the symbolic value of black power and beauty into a Swedish context, also questioning the perception of ”Swedishness”. Now represented at Nationalmuseum.
