Client: Pacha Soap
Pacha Soap is a socially and environmentally responsible soap maker, we love their wonderful soaps and clean ethos, and so we wanted to hear what they had to say about our labels. The custom hemp and wild-grass label we made for their product, they said, helps it look “unique”, and “like no other” on the shelf.
“The quality of the paper looks beautiful, and helps with marketing and presentation.”
- Andrew Vrbas, Jefe Jabenero, Pacha Soap Company
We were excited to hear that their customers and vendors love the labels, and recognize the product as made by Distant Village and connect with our triple bottom-line philosophy of People, Planet and Profit. This quickly conveys their environmental and social values: “it’s one cohesive message, with soap and label.”
