The Waitrose store Wolverhampton is playing an unexpected part in the relaunch of a Birmingham-born woman’s cottage industry. Emma Heathcote-James, the owner of Little Soap Company, produces a luxury organic hand-made soap in a workshop in the garden of her Cotwolds cottage. A born and bred Brummie from Harborne,
Emma won a prestigious contract to supply her six nearest Waitrose stores within her first six months of trading back in 2009. But she has had to give up the original name of the company, “Naked”, to avoid a legal row. To mark the change of name to Little Soap Company she made the first delivery of newly packaged wares to the flagship
Waitrose store on Penn Road, Wolverhampton. “We’re thrilled for the first batch of Little Local Lavender and Organic Oats soaps to arrive in Wolverhampton,” said Emma.
