Each BIXBY comb begins from single sheet of Zyl then skilled craftsman carefully carve and heat form the contours using traditional hand shaping techniques. Since the late 1800's artisans have been handcrafting combs from zyl, a cured organic resin derived from pulverised cotton and tree fibers valued for its brilliant hues and soft natural feel. Without compromise, your Bixby starts from a single Zyl sheet. Skilled craftsman then carve and heat-form the contours using traditional hand shaping techniques. Zyl |cellulose acetate| is a hypoallergenic resin derived from pulverized cotton linters and tree fibers. The resin begins by adding plastzizers to the organic mash creating a clear pulp. Natural pigments and dyes are slowly mixed in creating natures most brilliant hues. These are the basic building blocks for artisans to cut and arrange into unique patterns, finally the designs are extruded into thin rectangular sheets and cured for skilled craftsman to carve quality utilitarian articles. Zyl is a high performance thermoplastic with a unique combination of properties that makes it the optimal material for optical frames, combs, tool handles, and musical instrument embellishments. Bixby handcrafted comb collection is designed for optimum drag, comes in a unique array of limited edition colours and patterns for all hair types. Comes with a Distressed Tin Case Forged From Grade A Tin Plates
