Wood Dish Handmade in France
Wood Dish Handmade in France
Handmade natural soaps are great for the skin as they have a higher % of glycerin compared to chemically made soaps bought in stores. Since glycerin attracts water, you should leave your soap on a well drained soap dish to ensure it dries out between uses. This way your soap will last longer. A wood or bamboo dish is ideal and also eco-friendly!
These solid maple wood soap dishes are handcrafted without glue or screws by Stephane, an artisan using his local wood from the forests of the Vosges and Alsace. Its manufacture is the result of a passion for real solid wood, which grew by itself in nature.
Each piece is handmade passing through his hands multiple times with the help of conventional machinery.
Maple wood absorbs water and then rejects it, thus preventing the soap from being left in the humidity. It will not deteriorate over time, but its natural color may change over the years. For a longer life, it's best to alternate between 2 plates: from time to time use another dish to let the other fully dry.
