Washing with natural and organic soapberries

Washing with natural and organic soapberries

I honestly didn’t believe that soapberries would do as good a job as normal laundry detergents and fabric softeners but I really wanted to figure this out on my own and test the wonder berries. Boy, did they prove me wrong! After using the soapberries from That Red House for about a month, I can conclude that they do their job till perfection. Not only are the soapberries natural and organic, they are also super easy to use and wash all my clothes clean, even my sports clothes.
 
According to That Red House, “The soapberries are the fruit of the Sapindus Mukorossi tree, which grows in several different regions around the world, but is most prevalent in the Himalayas. The shell of the fruit is then collected, dried and packed for use. The shell is exceptionally high in 'saponin' which is nature's soap. This saponin content reduces the surface tension of the water so it will remove dirt and leave fabrics, soft and clean.”
 
When I first found out about the soapberries, I didn’t find them under that name. They are often called soap nuts, but this is in fact not correct. They have nothing to do with nuts and everything to do with berries.

Why should you convert to soapberries

  • If you have allergies or a sensitive skin then you should try the soapberries. They are hypo-allergenic.
  • You basically throw money out the window if you use the traditional laundry detergents and fabric softeners. The soapberries cost around 10c per wash load for a 1 kg bag.
  • They are completely free of chemicals.
  • Grey water safe.
  • Septic safe.
  • Fully compostable.
  • The berries are 100% sustainable.
  • You don’t even need fabric softener with the soapberries because they leave clothes feeling soft and fresh.
  • Anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.
  • They have not been tested on animals.
  • If you have babies or children then you just have another reason to use soapberries since they are extremely gentle yet effective.
  • They reduce pollution.
  • Soapberry trees are often subject to deforestation, so purchasing them ensures that they are maintained as a form of income for the Nepalese people, thus reducing deforestation.
  • No pesticides, fertilisers or chemical treatments have been used in the growing or storing process. This ensures that nothing but 100% natural organic products are used in your home.

I wish you lots of fun with the natural soapberries but if you are still not completely convinced just think about this; you will be doing something good for the environment and you will also safe a lot of money in the long haul. Plus, they do really wash just as good, if not better actually, as the traditional laundry detergents.

Workshop of Little Wonder

Workshop of Little Wonder

Have you ever wondered how the product you are holding in your hands was made? To be honest, we think about this a lot. One could say that we kind of have to, working in the field that we do, but it’s not because we have to think about it – it pops up in our minds as a natural question. It was this thinking that guided us in the right direction when establishing Krug Designer Store and we follow it through all the way to our organic gardens with self-grown vegetables, furniture and décor made by family and friends and the way we consume in our daily lives. We ask “Who made my clothes?” or “Who made this beautiful, stunningly jewelry?”. Sometimes we are lucky and we find the answer right away and sometimes we have to search longer for the answer we are looking for and sometimes it even happens that we never find it. We want to share as much with you as we can and this includes sharing the process of making our products. So, after reading this you’ll know how Selma makes her jewelry line, Little Wonder. 
 

Selma is the woman behind the brand Little Wonder. She started creating jewelry during her art historian studies in Zagreb and her brand Little Wonder came to life in 2010. Many people will start a business because they have a vision, an idea and they start up their project but for Selma it was something else, something bigger than that.

Little Wonder came to life all on it’s own, out of pure love, a passion and a need to create something with her own hands. She simply couldn’t help not to carry on and fulfil her need.

Little Wonder and Selma and her workshop


It is by the way not so odd that Selma went this way in life. Her whole family was in some kind of artwork. Her grandma and mother had a knitting studio in the apartment where Selma grew up and her father painted and built wooden ships in his spare time. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.        
 
Selma does all her jewelry on her own from her unique and homey studio situated in her house. The comfortable surroundings enable her to create her breathtaking pieces with lots of passion and heart. The inspiration can flow free and she has the calm and focus to grasp it every time it gets close to her and she is not able to resist it. When a good idea comes to her mind she gets right at it and brings it to life.

Selma has a passion, a need and a lot of love for what she does

In this workshop Little Wonder is being made

Selma get's her inspiration for Little Wonder from basically everywhere Sometimes Selma get's some help with Little Wonder from her husband Shime


Selma’s husband Shime is geologist and together they have a ravishing collection of minerals. It happens from time to time that they go into the workspace together and develop a piece or two to the collection Selma is currently working on. Off course it can’t be all work and folding out new ideas so in the breaks they throw themselves over a game of pinball. Especially Shime is a huge pinball enthusiast and it usually helps the creativity to do something totally different and let the brain get some rest as well.

Selma uses brass, which she cuts and polishes by hand, leather, semiprecious stones and galvanized metal components in her work. It is all done by herself in Croatia or with a little bit of help from a cooperation she has with a Croatian company.

When selma starts working on a new idea she usually starts off by making drawings, testing designs, play with the colours and shapes and before she knows it something new has come to life.

She can find her inspiration basically everywhere she goes, there’s no limit to where the inspiration come from. However, being an art historian she seeks inspiration in the nature, art, architecture, shapes and textures etc.

Selma and Shime have a beautiful baby boy named Maks. A usual working day for Selma starts with a full and healthy breakfast with her adorable little family. When Maks falls asleep, Selma will start her work on Little Wonder. She will go to her home studio and work on orders and create new stuff. While listening to music she has fun creating and being creative.

After some work, she will cook lunch, prepared from their organic garden with vegetables, wine and olive oil.

Selma truly feels blessed with all the Mediterranean has to offer and she couldn’t wish for better surroundings for her creative mind and her second baby Little Wonder.
