Sarah Fox's Profile

About

We are a family business, run collectively.

The business is comprised of Doug who designs and makes the bamboo soap dishes; Corinne who felts the majority of the soap; and Doug & Corinne's daughter Sarah who makes the cold process soap, creates some felted soap and runs the Etsy shop.

We come from a long line of crafters, artisans, and artists - family who knitted, sewed, wood worked, painted, needle worked, quilted, made jewelry, among many other works.

Sarah started making soap years ago for personal use because she has allergies to certain scents and has very sensitive skin. Her body just cannot tolerate the harsh fragrance and chemicals in most soaps.

Sarah started making soap years ago for personal use because she has allergies to certain scents and has very sensitive skin. Her body just cannot tolerate the harsh fragrance and chemicals in most soaps.

Sarah created Flatlanders Soap Co. while working for a non-profit organization that helped low-income people start small businesses and she wanted to learn more hands-on skills so that she could better aid the participants in their goals.

She was laid off and decided to make Flatlanders Soap her full time job. She continues to make soap for people like her who have sensitivities and allergies, but also for those who are conscious about avoiding exposure to chemicals that may have ill effects on our bodies. Also for those who may not have sensitivities, but who just want to use a great bar of soap to get clean.

Flatlanders turned into a family business when Corinne, who was already an expert felter, realized you could felt soap. She tried it out and we all loved the result. So did our customers. Doug, who had recently retired and loved working with wood decided to make draining soap dishes using eco-friendly bamboo to help our long-lasting bars last even longer.

We are open to custom orders for soap dishes and felted soap. Get in touch with us and we will do our best to meet your needs.
