Abbey Brown Soap Artisan is located in Chicago, IL. Our little shoppe is committed to selling handmade natural bath products and wares from local artists. We also open up our space for events and to teach classes in soap making, aromatherapy, herbal infusion, and more! Abbey Brown is a name chosen by creator, Deborah, and is actually a color of paint. We are still wondering if Abbey is ever going to show up to work!
About the Bloggers
DEBORAH KRAEMER - Owner and Creator, Deborah has been making soap since 2001. Trying to find an alternative soap for her son’s sensitive skin, Deb stumbled into the world of soap making and started selling her soap at local farmer’s markets under the name Abbey Brown. She has since started teaching other’s the craft of Soap Making, became a Registered Aromatherapist, opened two satellite locations in Chicago, and is always expanding the Abbey Brown product line with candles, body butters, and more! She believes strongly in creating a community and network of people who share the same passions, and hopes this blog can lend as a home for that.
