The Tiny Soap Lab…
“Introducing The TINY Soap Lab – set in the heart of Finchingfield

Just over two years ago, our family uprooted and moved to the quintessentially English village of Finchingfield, surrounded by beautiful Essex countryside. Together, we decided to combine our creativity and set about learning a whole new set of skills.  Making our first batch of handmade soap was a revelation and we immediately fell in love with soap-making. We discovered first-hand the benefits of using skin-loving oils and butters in our recipes. We made soaps for friends and family and their positive response was overwhelming: we knew this was the path we needed to follow.

Here at The TINY Soap Lab we make our soap the traditional way, by hand in small batches. We use the highest quality skin-loving oils and butters. Our core recipe consists of natural, coconut oil, olive oil, shea butter and castor oil – all playing a vital role in creating a cleansing, moisturising soap bar with a creamy lather. Each artisan range features other carefully chosen, star ingredients which makes them extra special.   To complete the indulgent experience, we add the most amazing scents to our soaps. There is something for everyone at The TINY Soap Lab – we offer the choice between fragrance oils, natural essential oils or the option to go fragrance-free if preferred.”

The TINY Soap Lab offers four ranges: Hemp, Oat Milk, Facial, Castile.  Website: tinysoaplab.uk. Instagram: @tinysoaplab

Fluffy Claw Art Print…
“My name is Georgina and last year in lockdown I decided to get crafty and put all my time and focus into learning a new skill and this is where Fluffyclawartprints was established.  I design a wide range of Art Prints mainly for children, and the theme is mainly animal based. I am a huge animal lover and I love bringing, colour, fun and adventure into the art prints I design. So children’s imaginations can run wild with the quirky creatures that are presented in the pictures that I create.
I also have an online store through Etsy were you can take a look at lots of my designs, I’m always updating new ones to keep up with the latest trends. I can also take orders for personalising art prints if desired.  I also sell candles, mirrors and greeting cards for all occasions, and much more! Look forward to seeing you at a craft fair soon.

Cards in bloom…
“A bit about me …..’ I’m inspired by nature, the intricate details in nature’s designs, especially flora.  I love to capture that image and moment.  Then I design and create and print photo greeting cards. It’s all ‘in-house’. My website is www.cardsinbloom.co.uk

“Cortissa ‘s business idea and inspiration started at the University of Essex after I concluded a research on cork as part of my Masters’ dissertation.   I have discovered that cork products have amazing quality, look, and feel, yet sustainable fashion products.

Cork fabric is known by many as the “new leather ” due to its durability and quality. It is extracted from the cork oak tree without ever harming it. My purpose is to design and sell handmade products that are unique with a luxurious feel and make this innovative, eco-friendly and unique material known to the world. Cortissa is committed to making a difference by having the environment as a core value that guides the business through every decision.

£79 Sally is simple and elegant, and it comes in fun and bright colour. The outside of the wallet comes in a bright colour, and its interior is in natural cork colour and has plenty of space for your cards with eight slots for cards, two bigger slots for larger documents, space for notes and a pocket with a zip for coins. Super light that will feel comfortable in your bag.”
