In regards to
Why did you create a soap factory?
Marie was in charge of communication in an association for the environment before becoming a master soap maker . In parallel with her activity, she took advantage of her free time to make soaps for herself and her loved ones. After careful consideration, with a Master Soapmaker diploma in hand, and with the desire to revitalize her favorite village, Pierrefonds , she decided to create La Savonnerie de Pierrefonds .
Why did you choose Pierrefonds?
Marie has been based in Pierrefonds since 2012. This small village in the Oise , a former spa resort , is mainly known for its castle , restored by the architect Viollet-le-Duc and renowned today internationally.
Every year, tens of thousands of visitors flock to see this remarkable heritage . But finding that there were few craftsmen to meet the needs of tourists, Marie saw the opportunity to set up her shop there, close to the castle , so that they could leave with a local souvenir. Our master soap maker wishes above all to contribute to the economic life of Pierrefonds and its attractiveness .
