The Crafty Chook is a family owned soap making business located on New Zealand’s Wild West Coast. We are the home of the “Wild Child Scrub Bars”. Our soap is originally designed, crafted and based around the naturally untamed, the unique and quirky, the diverse and resilient, the simple and raw, and the rustic rugged beauty of life on the Coast.
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN… GORSE is a total pain in the rear for many a New Zealander, so we decided to do something about that. Making Gorse into soap is a crazy idea, it’s nuts, it’s just not right, people start to worry you’re a few kangaroos short of the top paddock. With crazy in mind and the idea that “Gorse has to be good for something” we produced our first Gorse Scrubber Soap in September 2016, we sold the lot a week later. By October we had regular orders, by November we had started taking back orders and by December we were run off our feet. From that one crazy idea our entire business bloomed and self seeded quicker than our newly cleared paddocks.
Our aim is to flaunt, boast and share with everyone how amazing the West Coast is…with an ounce of humor, a small pinch of political incorrectness and a great bar of soap.
