“We have decided to update our bands, we feel that the straight razor has really made the brand iconic and I wanted to really exemplify it as the main focus of the band and I also wanted to keep the super modern feel, which is what we did last year with the boxes at the trade show. They are now a Matte paper, with gold and silver powder finishing, additionally I used the same size and shape of the Siempre band, in order to tie the three together. Nothing else is changing with the the two blends, or box packaging, just a little update on the cigar bands themselves,” commented Bellatto in a statement to Cigar Coop.
La Barba produces its cigars at Tabacalera William Ventura in the Dominican Republic. The company’s brands are distributed by Robert Caldwell’s Down and Back group.
