Our story

Welcome to our corner of peace in a busy world. We're Mary and Tim, and like many others, we decided that corporate city life had lost its appeal. In search of a slower, more grounded pace, we packed up our old life and moved with our one-month-old daughter to the countryside. We settled in beautiful Beaumaris in Anglesey, a town where we had sailed and fished for many years. 

As a trained artist, Mary had long felt inspired by the Menai Strait and the scenic snow-capped peaks of Snowdonia. After moving to Wales, she set up her studio in a tiny seventeenth-century cottage where she could focus on her unique monoprinting technique. A few years later, we purchased a long-established business that specialized in artisan soaps, home fragrances, shampoos, and balms. 

Before long, we decided to combine the two ventures. We launched a new collection of season-themed creations featuring packaging decorated with Mary's abstract art. The rest, as they say, is history.

The success of our home fragrance products has cemented our reputation as a luxury Welsh brand and for that, we are truly thankful. We currently supply many charming independent shops, boutique hotels, and holiday homes across Wales. What’s more, our reach has now expanded to include customers throughout the UK and the USA. We're also fortunate to have the most incredible retail space in the form of a converted old Post Office. Filled to the brim with all of our products, it links directly through to our workshop in the old Sorting Office! 

Using only the highest quality, all-natural ingredients, our formulas are handmade by our wonderful staff here in Beaumaris (assisted at times by our daughter Alice, now 8). We’re proud of the fact that our organic essential oils and soap bases are vegan, not tested on animals, and SLS-free. Protecting the environment is a top priority for us, which means following sustainable practices to maintain a safe and eco-friendly workplace. In support of the circular economy, we work with refill shops to reuse bulk packaging, ensuring all our packaging is recycled. Anglesey is officially the first plastic free county in the UK and we're doing our part to sustain this legacy! 

We also specialize in handcrafted cold-process and Castile soaps, providing custom orders for major retailers. Our Castile soap, made from the finest virgin olive oil sourced from 300-year-old Greek olive groves, is perfect for sensitive skin.

Our websites are dedicated to Trade, Refill, and Retail customers, but we welcome you to visit our shop, art space, and workshops anytime. Just give us a call when visiting our lovely seaside town and we’ll be more than happy to welcome you.

We hope to see you soon!
Mary, Tim, and Alice
