If soap grew wild on Haida Gwaii this is what it would look like. Traditionally the Potlatch is “the giving away of property and/or gift giving”. The bright energizing scent of this Potlatch Bar makes it great for gift giving or for treating yourself. Our triple milk blend moisturizes and protects while kaolin clay +activated charcoal clarify and cleanse.
Did you know? In Haida culture the Potlatch involved feasting, dancing and the giving of gifts. All changes to the existing order were announced at these events while everyone was present to witness. Marriages, adoptions, pole raisings, name giving, and so on. All of these activities were recorded through Potlatches and the witnesses were rewarded for attending with elaborate gifts. Today the Haida Potlatch still continues and soapmaker, Valerie, has been blessed to attend a few. As a member of the Raven Clan hosting the event, they are required to contribute to the gift giving if we are able, and through this inspiration the Haida Potlatch Bar was created. It has been Valerie's contribution at recent Potlatches and she consider it her signature bar.
*All soaps have been individually handcrafted so variance in pattern, color and design are expected; giving each one its own unique design and character.
