James Billing

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 James, Irish craftsman and furniture maker. 

The product: A beautiful piece of craftsmanship. Handmade from a solid piece of wood, each soap dish retain their original and unique grain pattern. The slim shape has been custom made for our handmade soap bars and would look awesome on your kitchen counter, bathroom sink or shower.

Teak is a hardwood prized for its durability and strength. It is highly resistant to scratches and water, and - unlike oak or pine - it will not rot or turn black in humid environments. The reversible design lets your soap drain and dry completely, making it last much longer.

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

Size: 7.5cm x 9.0 cm
