CREATIVE MUSEUM: a private collection remarkable for its quality, beauty and the rarity of its pieces.
It brings together more than 2,500 head ornaments
This heritage from around the world, covers many eras, styles and cultures. It is essentially composed of hair combs, but also extends to pins, barrettes, headbands, crowns, tiaras and diadems. It specializes in everything to do with hair adornments.
These items, usually very rarely studied or collected, are bursting with information of all kinds: ethnological, sociological, technological, artistic… They have been on display previously in exhibitions and they always aroused surprise, admiration and interest. But this is not enough. The best way to reveal this collection is surely via a website.
CREATIVE MUSEUM: a totally virtual museum
There is nowhere you can see this collection, since it is private. As the owners want to share its resources with everyone, CREATIVE MUSEUM will do its best to offer all the services you could find in a museum: a temporary exhibition with a special theme, a view of the permanent collection, background information and more: expertise.
A website still under construction
We have many more items to add and many ideas for the future (a forum for exchanges, special guests....) We keep on looking for new pieces and buying (we do not have any financial help), and we receive donations.
So, check back this website often for more hair ornaments and news. Access is free!
You can even subscribe to FEEDS. (See address bar in homepage)
