Solid Teak Wooden Soap Dish


If these floors could talk...

The story: Reclaimed wood is wood with a past. This soap dish was cut from old teak floorboards and given new life by an Irish craftsman and furniture maker. 

The product: One of the most beautiful soap dishes you'll ever see. Handcrafted from a solid piece of wood, each dish retain their original and unique grain pattern. The slim shape has been custom made to fit our handmade soap bars and would look awesome on your kitchen counter, bathroom sink, or shower.

Teak is a hardwood that is prized for its durability and strength. It is highly resistant to scratches, water and rot and performs excellent in wet environments. The reversible design lets your soap drain and dry completely, making it last much longer.

To care for your soap tray, simply give it a good scrub once in a while with a soft brush and let dry. Sometimes the wood may react with the soap and cause some discolouration, but this does not harm either product and can be rinsed off with water.
