A daily staple turned visual object - the Bowie comb stands to transform the act of combing the hair into a delicate artform.
Winden barrettes, combs, and clips are manufactured by a family-owned and operated company in France. Each piece is created using cellulose acetate manufactured in Italy and plated stainless steel made in France, both in accordance with the European REACH regulations.
Cellulose acetate is prepared by introducing an acetyl group (like vinegar) to cellulose (a major component of cell walls that surround plants). The addition of an acetyl group to cellulose makes it a semi-synthetic material much like rayon or viscose. The cellulose used in Winden pieces is derived from wood and cotton linters.
Beginning with the ends, gently glide through hair to smooth and detangle.
