This French Heritage Gift Set contains 100% natural products, including one Ash Nailbrush, one Ash Soap Holder and one 300g Fer à Cheval Marseille Soap.
With their shared values at the core, this was a natural collaboration between Andrée Jardin, craftsman brushier, and the soap factory Fer à Cheval.
The soap dish and the nail brush are made by Andrée Jardin of thermo-heated ash, a wood naturally treated with high temperature steam. This production technique gives the wood its natural brown caramel color, resistance to humidity and incomparable longevity.
They marry perfectly with the olive oil based Marseille soap made by Fer à Cheval. This soap is 100% plant-based, and created without perfume, coloring, preservatives, dyes, additives or palm oil. Which is why this soap has been valued for generations. It is biodegradable + environmentally friendly, representing an ecological alternative to chemicals found in most skin care and housekeeping products.

With the creation of plastic, quality brush making techniques fell by the wayside, but Andrée Jardin has maintained their commitment to "de vrais balais qui durent" (translation "real brushes that last"). Andrée Jardin has revived the craft, promising simplicity, quality and durability. Andrée Jardin designs + manufactures essentials for the home that are equal parts useful, well-made and beautiful.
FER À CHEVAL
With 160 years of existence, the Savonnerie Fer à Cheval carries on a recipe passed down to each new generation of master soap makers. Fer à Cheval's soap factory, firmly rooted in living heritage, is proud to continue to craft a key product in Marseille culture with respect for tradition, attention to detail and a great deal of love.
Saponification takes place in our old cauldrons according to a traditional method, manufactured in five steps: pasting, graining out, boiling, washing and liquidation. These five steps are the reason for the iconic soap's renown.
