November 4th, 2013

Brown Bag Soap Co.Brown Bag Soap Company is named after a term for carrying bottled alcohol in brown bags or “brown bagging it.” The company was started after mother-daughter pair, Vicki and Hannah, discovered making soap with beer from a local Atlanta, GA brewery proved beneficial to skin.

While they use hand-stamped, cut pieces of brown paper bags for their soap labels, Brown Bag Soap Co. needed a unique way to package their candles too.
