We decided to launch this soap pouch when we learned about an enterprising young seamstress from Haute-Savoie. Based in Annemasse (France), Florence and her team of 5 designers & seamstresses won us over with their philosophy and their handmade soap pouches. Following a zero waste approach, they made us a natural product using hemp. We love it!

100% natural with pure hemp
The hemp fabric that Florence uses for her products is 100% pure, made from hemp stem fibres. Driven by an environmentally friendly mindset, she carefully selects and imports it from Romania, the last European source of hemp yarn.
The outside of this soap pouch is made from a thick and breathable hemp canvas, lined with fine and absorbent hemp gauze. The gauze absorbs the moisture from the soap, allowing it to dry.
Made by hand
After the various pieces of fabric have been cut out, they are sewn together using GOTS-certified organic cotton thread and finished with a double hemp cord.
The team uses semi-industrial sewing machines (flatbed lockstitch and overlock machines), and all finishes are handmade. The internal composition label is made in France by a young company called Label Française.
Practical and reusable
Ideal for everyday use, you don't need to wait for your soap to dry to put it away. Even if it is still damp, you can store it in the soap pouch. The hemp canvas and gauze will absorb all the water and moisture.
Thanks to its practical features, this soap pouch is perfect for holidays, hikes, flights and trips. No need for rigid plastic travel cases! The pouch works perfectly on its own, preventing leaks in your toiletry bag. Alternatively, you could hang it on the shower wall or on your bath next to your sea sponge. Your soap will stay clean and dry, ready for its next use.
Washing the soap pouch is a breeze. Simply turn it inside out and scrub it with a little warm water then air dry.
