Handmade soap

As a small special project, Bjørk has joined forces together with soap maker Alveland. Together we created a handmade soap based on birc shoot and catkins.

North in Norway on the west coast you can find one of Norway´s biggest islands. As most of the west coast in Norway it is picturesque and breathtaking. 

On this slightly remote island you will find Alveland and Rita. Rita is a passionate soapmaker and owner of Alveland - the soap company. 
Rita has fascinated us with her legend about Andøya. The legend says that a long long time ago, Andøya was the home of elf´s and fairy´s. Islands like this was only visible for a short period of time, before the vanished into the ocean again for a indefinite time period. Fate would have it that someone threw big amounts of steel on the island, forced it to never again return to sub sea levels, making it just another ordinary island on the west coast of Norway. 

Rita has a beautiful soap store on Andøya in addition to ship nationwide to retailers.

Many of Alveland soaps are based on Nordic ingridients such as; blueberries, cloudberries and so on. 
Bjørk contacted Alveland almost a year ago to see if we could do something together. The result is a amazing handmade soap based on birch shoots and catkins soaked in olive oil. When you touch, smell and use this soap you really get the feeling of the birch and the Nordic. The soap is avaliable in our webshop for a limited time. 

You can find the soap in our webshop here.
