Hi, I’m Friederike. I was born in Germany (Saarland), one mile from the French border (Lorraine). I grew up in that beautiful corner of Germany then in my mid twenties I moved north, first to Lübeck (at the Baltic) and then Hamburg (a part of my heart will always be there) and finally to Berlin, where I met my partner Stuart. Although we loved and enjoyed Berlin, a vibrant and wonderful capital, after 12 years we grew a bit tired of city life and having stressful jobs. So one day Stuart enticed me (not that it took much) to move to the beautiful Isle of Arran where we have lived very happily since May 2013.
I inherited my mum’s love for beautiful soaps. So, as a birthday present, Stuart booked me in at a soap making workshop in Edinburgh. I loved it and kept crafting soaps at home. I’m actually not really “making” soap as I use a professional high quality soap base for so-called “melt & pour” soaps. What I do is, I “craft & design” soaps inspired by the colours and nature of the stunning island I have the luck to call home now.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my pretty soaps, every one is unique. I’m sure my mum would have loved to see them. Here’s to you Mum!
