A designer-maker of high quality glycerine soaps which are both decorative and practical, English Handmade Soap draws on 1950’s patterns and colour palettes for design inspiration. A brilliantly versatile gift, a beautiful-smelling and gorgeous-looking bar of soap can say ‘Thank-You’, ‘Happy Birthday’, ‘Thinking of You’, …the possibilities are endless and none of them involve calories!
Shower gel versus a bar of soap? You could call it 'modern vintage', otherwise known as 'common sense'! The advantages of soap are brilliantly expressed by the inimitable Matthew Parris in his Times newspaper article of September 2011. He concludes:
'Millions of gallons of neat gel must be going straight down drains all over Britain as you read your Times this morning.... Gel is an ablutionary challenge and an ecological disaster. The comparative efficiency of dispensing detergent from the wet surface of a bar of soap, rather than trying to glug it out of a bottle cannot be denied.' Well said Mr Parris!
So ditch the new-fangled shower gel and pick up a good old-fashioned long-lasting bar of soap. English Handmade Soap is soap that you will love to give but are tempted to keep.
