Who We Are
Grattan Creek Handcrafted is located on our little chunk of dirt in the little city of Martinsville, Virginia. Grattan Creek runs through our backyard, which we share with squirrels, deer, groundhogs, the occasional coyote and maybe a snake or two. Unlike bigger cities we've lived in, the birds make a heck of a lot more noise than traffic or the neighbors.
We started making soap some time ago because we didn't like the soaps that were available at our local grocery. We make soap with natural oils like olive, sunflower and coconut oil. We use natural and traditional ingredients like goats' milk, pine tar, honey and colloidal oatmeal.
When you make soap, you can't help but make way more than you can possibly use yourself, so we started sharing with friends and co-workers. They started coming back for more and here we are.
Now we have also added handcrafted items from our woodshop to the table. Check out the gallery for examples of our work.
