The Junction Face + Body Soap
The Junction : Body + Face Soap is a handcrafted soap bar that celebrates the cool and industrial vibe of Toronto’s popular neighborhood, The Junction. This soap pays homage to the unique presence of railways and industrial ambiance in the area. It has a lovely purple clay marble soap with charcoal confetti on top to represent railway track ballast. A natural essential oil blend of citrus, woods and warm sweet notes that may delight your senses and soothe your mind. This soap is made with olive oil and coconut oil, enriched with shea butter and rice bran oil to nourish and hydrate your skin. All of our soaps are cold-processed and handcrafted in small batches with love and care.

To extend the life of your soap, please use a well-draining soap dish to ensure your soap dries completely after each use. Handcrafted soaps are high in glycerin. Glycerin attracts water (hence its moisturizing effect) therefore our soaps should not be left sitting in water, as it will cause them to melt.
Our most cherished objects carry personal meaning and add unique character to our home. Part of this is due to their timeless quality, designed to last through the ages—the perfect model of sustainability. Buying vintage is one way to reduce your footprint, keep items out of landfills and engage in the cyclical economy. At Woven Kin, we source all of our products with an eye to craftsmanship and quality and focus on low-impact packaging and practices wherever possible.
Many modern day machine-made rugs contain plastics and off-gas toxic chemicals into our homes. These rugs are often difficult to clean and repair and frequently end up in landfills, taking thousands of years to break down. Vintage handmade rugs such as ours are made with wool, cotton, and natural dyes that are extremely durable, repairable, and are literally made to last lifetimes. When they finally reach the end of their lifecycle, these completely organic rugs will decompose in a relatively short time.
Vintage rugs are crafted to be durable and surprisingly easy to care for. With proper care your Woven Kin rug will last for many, many years to come.
Using a rug pad with your vintage rug will extend its life and provide extra traction and protection for your floors. We recommend an eco-friendly version made from recycled felt and natural rubber for maximum versatility & cushion or natural rubber for areas where extra cushion is not needed. Rug Pad USA is our recommended supplier because they have high quality, durable, and eco-friendly options that won't damage your floors. We recommend Super Lock Natural (for low profile grip), Contour Lock (low profile felt cushion + grip), or Superior Lock (thicker felt cushion + grip).
We typically go with a lower profile rug pad in high traffic areas such as entry ways and hallways to avoid tripping hazards. In areas where your rug is anchored with furniture such as the living room or bedroom, you might want to consider a rug pad with a bit more cushion.
We recommend vacuuming your rug regularly to keep dirt from getting embedded and damaging the fibers over time. For best results, vacuum front and back side of rug, from side to side, avoiding fringes.
For small spills, blot with a dry cloth immediately to remove as much of the mess as possible, then repeat with a damp cloth if necessary. Use water and mild detergent and/or white vinegar for tougher spots, blotting gently.
Rugs might need a deeper clean every few years or so. For smaller rugs, you can hand wash with a mild detergent and cold water (be sure to spot test first for colorfastness). Remove as much excess water as possible and lay flat in a warm, sunny spot to dry. It is important to rinse well to remove all soap and dry the rug thoroughly before using.
For larger rugs or tougher messes, it is best to take your rug to a professional who specializes in cleaning fine antique rugs. Never dry clean or steam clean your rug.
