Museums

In the Norman capital of combs, uncover the amazing history of an exceptional know-how. Comb making has been Ezy's main industry for centuries. Its combs were renowned throughout the world for their quality and their sophistication. Fashion designers and hairdressers from Paris used to come and visit the factory. The museum was set up in a factory that closed down in 1984. The former workshop showcases the unique skill of the comb makers of Ezy. The manor house holds a collection of rare combs and headdresses: lice comb, moustache comb, combs belonging to Paco Rabanne, Jacques Dessange, etc., combs made of tortoise-shell, ivory, horn, etc. Peasants in Ezy have made combs in winter as early as the 17th century. First using boxwood, then using horse hoof and cow horn. They worked 12 to 14 hours a day and produced about 12 combs per day, which they sold in Paris.
