Fazeek Is Making Usable Art

Sally Tabart
26th June, 2018

A new range of natural soaps that look more at home on a gallery plinth than beside the sink!

Fancy gallery ladies have been onto the idea of wearable art for quite some time now – but usable art isn’t something we’ve seen much of before! We’re talking about Fazeek soaps, the latest offering from Jackie Fezakas’ homewares range that looks WAY too good to just be delegated to the bathroom! In a time where our homes are on show like never before and everything is an Instagram ‘moment’, Jackie’s concept behind Fazeek was to transform an everyday item into a beautiful art piece.

Handmade in small batches in Fazeek’s Melbourne studio, the brand uses a 100% pure vegan base made from coconut oil, which is also selected for its nourishing properties. Along with having a luxe look and feel, it’s of the utmost importance to Jackie that the soaps are made ethically. All are palm oil free, detergent free and not tested on animals. The natural clay colours, that give the soaps their covetable hues, are sourced from all around the world (but mostly from right here at home in Australia!).

You can find Fazeek homewares online or catch Jackie at the upcoming Finders Keepers market.
