RAMITTA a name which rings a bell in many of us living in Ipoh. Does anyone know what Ramitta means? Ramitta is a Samean word which means high place. The special term befittingly gives significance to the head, top of the human body and the hair that crowns it all.
It is the Finest Traditional Gentlemen’s Barbershop in Malaysia, having its first boutique outlet in Ipoh, Perak. It was first founded in 1923, being a brainchild of an aspiring barber who has placed a special importance to the crafts and principles of the fabled Barbers of Middle East. As he got older and wiser, he passed this valuable knowledge to his kins, where the renowned family participated passionately and immensely in charity work at central prisons and organisations to provide razor shaves and haircuts to those in need. When the craftsmanship was passed on to the third generation, the mastery was further honed and transformed into a professional career when the young but highly resourceful grandson shared the art in Italy from 1980 to 1990. Today, it has evolved to become the paragon of men’s grooming internationally, rightfully giving justice and recognition to the earliest pioneer of Ramitta.
Our Editor In-Chief, was invited to discover and experience the lost art of old-fashioned gentlemen’s grooming. He was taken back in time to the luxurious deluxe amenities and services ranging from traditional straight razor shave to the avant-garde pampering options. He was made to sit on an electric powered barber chair which had leather finishing. He claims the experience gave him a sense of feeling of being in a gentlemen’s club from abroad. He was also served with coffee and nuts from Turkey. They even have a cigar bar for those who smoke cigar.
He had the pleasure to meet the founder Mr. Ali Abdul Nasir who himself is a well-known recognised Master Barber having taken maintained the family tradition from more a few decade ago. The setup of Ramitta was created to provide a clean, relaxed and a friendly atmosphere. Mr. Ali has also intended to create more Master Barber’s in Malaysia in the near future elevating the industry to another level.
