About Our Name...The first thing people usually ask is “Where did the name Mermaid’s Purse come from?” A mermaid’s purse is a shark or skate egg sack. It is usually attached to kelp and is somewhat transparent, meaning you can shine a light through it and view the entire development of the aquatic species. When hatched, the egg sack washes ashore.
I live on the Mississippi Gulf Coast with my Husband and three Children. In college I studied our local aquatic and terrestrial ecology with Ceramics and Pottery as an art elective. It was during this time I heard the term Mermaid’s Purse. Our logo is a more artistic, yet similar, representation of a real Mermaid’s Purse.
Soap making was something wonderful added into my life by my Grandmother who used to make soap with her Grandmother. (different ingredients back then)
