Go-Comb had a distinct “aha!” moment, as so many great inventions have been birthed in the past. While inventor Heather was out to dinner with her uncle, he pulled out his wallet to retrieve his black plastic comb (you know the one). There it was, awkwardly protruding out of the folds of his wallet. Not very practical, and certainly not cool.
Heather thought, “why doesn’t someone make a comb that fits in a wallet?” After a futile search, she decided to make it herself. She learned how to prototype at a local hacker space, making the first Go-Combs on a laser cutter and opening an Etsy shop within a couple weeks. Her background in fashion led to designs inspired by current pattern and color trends, and with unchecked creativity, she launched with an overwhelming and whimsical assortment.
