indigenous artisans soap bars

Joella has combined two of her passions: traditional First Nations beadwork and handcrafted soaps. This new unscented soap line showcases beadwork from Northern Tutchone women from the community of Mayo. Each soap includes a brief story about the artist and the traditional piece that was photographed. Some of the artwork is very old, belonging in collections of their family members, others are from more recent beadwork. The beading comes from moccasins, clothing, scissor cases and even a beautiful baby belt. Each soap shares just a snippet of this beautiful craft. There are eight different soaps, each packaged in biodegradable plastic and a reusable hand-stamped bag.
