The Dolly Tub

Handmade whatnots to jolly the soul

My name is Suzanne and I run a small company nestled in the Sliabh Aughty Mountains of County Galway where I live in our little 300 year old pink cottage! Having worked as a textile designer for 3 years in Liverpool, my husband and I moved to our rural life in a whirlwind. I began making soap four years ago when I decided to produce favours for our wedding. I made small bars of goat’s milk soap, wrapped in a pretty pale blue box with a 1930s verse card inside. Our guests loved it and so began my cottage industry.

I like to keep all of my recipes simple. I choose each ingredient a bit like my sense of colour; I choose what comes naturally. the look of my products, for me, is as important as the quality. Loving all things vintage, naturally my packaging have a nostalgic feel.

Every product I make is made using completely natural ingredients free from the chemical nasties of modern day life.
