Ideal for bringing shine to long, straight hair, The Traditionalist - Le Parrain comb restores its magnificence. This comb from the Officine can masterfully tame length: its teeth are available in wide or fine spacing and make detangling gentler. It fits perfectly in the hand and is available in two shades: tortoiseshell or sand. It is good-sized but slips easily into a bag and its unique slightly angular lines make it one of the most popular combs among lovers of beautiful things and other aesthetes.

This comb is handcrafted in Switzerland by one of the last manufacturers in Europe. Cut from a block of very high-quality acetate, it is shaped, sculpted and then polished. The teeth and notches are especially arranged so as not to injure the hair. A plant fibre, the acetate reveals a unique pattern specific to each comb.
This luxurious object is stored in our famous velvet pouches to be transported safely.

“Her hair dreamt about being very carefully combed in the morning.”
Richard Brautigan, Sombrero Fallout, 1980.

The Officine's prowess

This is undoubtedly an exercise resulting from the principles of goldsmithing. Twelve steps are necessary to manufacture each comb of the Officine Universelle Buly. The process begins with the cutting of acetate according to the template of the chosen model. The shaping then consists of adjusting the acetate to the design of the comb. Polishing and dulling are then necessary steps to round off the angles and sharpen the teeth. The manufacture of the comb continues with the meticulous making of the teeth: the acetate is sawed to draw the teeth that are then faceted.
Ultimate beauty treatment: the sanding smoothes the surface and rounds the tips of the teeth. Lastly, the comb is brushed.
The steam bath gives shine and the polishing carried out by the expert hands of the craftsman complete this high-quality product of great merit.

Cellulose acetate is a luxurious material that was invented in 1865 by Paul Schützenberger then perfected at the very beginning of the 20th century by two Swiss chemists Camille and Henri Dreyfus. Extracted from cotton, this natural polymer has several intrinsic properties that make it the perfect component for the Officine combs: soft to the touch, it is perfectly resistant to water and the passage of time.
