Story

Made by a soap company that’s been operating out of Tokyo since their founding in 1892, this fish-shaped soap is a traditional Japanese welcome gift. The tai, or sea bream in English, has long been a sign of good luck, either because of its bright red color, long life, or that its name is the ending of the Japanese word for “happy” — medetai. Modeled after this lucky fish, each brown-sugar-scented soap is handcrafted using a wooden candy-making mold before being strung up on a linen hanging rope. The perfect housewarming, thank you, or break-a-leg gift, this extra-large soap is bound to leave a lasting impression on whoever receives it.
