It puts me in awe when people dig out and revitalize long-gone traditional crafts. One very courageous woman from Vorarlberg did just that when she took over Vienna's last soap manufacture in 2006 as it was just a step away from shutting down.

Strong-willed and passionate, Sonja Baldauf moved to Vienna's third district and has been producing luxury soap along traditional recipes ever since. Like back in the days, Wiener Seife 'Vienna Soap' is stirred by hand  – 50 kg at once!

This soap maker lady swoons over her finest, purest ingredients that will spoil your skin and clear it better than any common commercially available product. I got infected by her passion and could not resist to just experience how her soap feels on my skin.

In the meantime, I've become a great fan of 'Wiener Seife' and always look forward to my regular visits to buy new soaps for myself or as give-aways from Vienna. On the street one can smell the fragrance and I feel magically pulled into the vault where shelves full of colorful treasures with natural ingredients of all kinds attract my attention.

'Wiener Seife' also sells five fragrances of shaving soap for men as well as the matching shaving brush made of badger hair or the luxury soap in a small wooden pot to go with it all, making a perfect gift.
