Patchouli - do you associate it with long-haired hippies with a liking for 'far-out' music, free love and exotic tobaccos?
Or do you recognise it as the foundation, the base-note of some of the world's most desirable, exclusive and expensive perfumes?
For us, patchouli is woody, earthy, spicy, totally seductive and totally addictive.
We love it for its warmth and depth. The way it adapts itself to the mantle of your skin and becomes part of you.
Patchouli is not ethereal, whimsical or fey. It is positive, self-assured, captivating. It isn't over powering but it does have depth of character. And what's so amazing is that it blends with your own body oils and adapts to become exclusive to you (not unlike our beautiful leather bags).
We love it so much that we have commissioned a small batch of organic, all natural, hand-made in England tablets of soap crammed with the fragrance of patchouli. And when we say 'all natural ingredients, that's exactly what we mean. There are no nasties in our patchouli soap.
Made by hand by a small artisan soap-makers hidden in the English countryside our patchouli soap lathers beautifully, leaves no residue and is kind totally skin friendly.
Each 100gm tablet of soap is embossed with our own Omega symbol and bears the legend: 'Lovingly hand-made in England.' And it is.

The images of the Products on our site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of the colours accurately reflect the colour of the Products. Your Products may vary slightly from those images.
Although we have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, because our Products are handmade, all sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on our site may vary slightly due to the nature of the materials we use as they can vary slightly in thickness. In addition, you should note that we cannot guarantee a uniformed appearance to each Product as they are handmade from natural materials and slight imperfections may occur. These imperfections include (but are not limited to), the natural grain of the leather, texture and colour variations, natural wrinkles, markings and scars. Due to the tanning and manufacture process some colour transfer may occur and water spotting may happen if the bag is exposed to rain - we cannot accept responsibility when this occurs.
