Soaps in cotton sacks!

We bought some soaps in France and decided to make cotton sacks to wrap them for our web-shop...the sacks, decorated by tranfers, can be used, filled with lavander flowers, to scent drawers , or to contain jewels or toilette products...I like hanging them from shelves too...I find them very decorative!

















The Marseilles soap is fantastic for body care and for laundry too...it is traditionally green or white. The white soap is made with palm oil, the green with at least 50% olive oil. Both varieties are exquisite, ultra-moisturizing skin care. Marseille Soap is recommended by dermatologists throughout the world for dry skin and other ailments. Its incredible purity and moisturizing properties make it ideal for sensitive skins. In France it has been trusted for generations to cleanse everything from linens to little faces.

















The Aleppo soap, all-natural product, is world famous for its purity and skin cleansing properties. Won't dry out sensitive or dry winter skin, and produces a nice, rich lather. It's hand made, unscented, and with all natural ingredients - lots of olive oil! It's great for anything - fine hand washables, bath, face - even sensitive baby's skin. You can even wash your hair with this soap!

...don't you think they're a nice gift idea??

Hi Vale,
what a lovely gifts you've made with the soap and the sacks !!
You did a great job by making them.....
It's raining here and I must do the household here .....I would rather be sitting in the sun but that's no option today.
Wish you a nice week , warm greetings from Gea from a cold Holland.

Good morning Vale!
I love these sweet sacks you have made with the transfers for the soaps....I love soaps made with olive oil and the Marseilles soap as well. Everything looks so attractive in your pictures! It is early yet but it is supposed to be a beautiful day and hot today, here in New York! It will feel like summer for a day and then back to spring time.
Be well! Laura
