It is relatively easy to guess what ‘Cotton’ in the brand name stands for. We love Cotton fibre and the products beautifully made out of them. For those wondering what ‘Olive’ stands for, let us tell you that and pay our tribute to our soap bars. It stands for the beautifully hand-crafted, all natural soaps based on olive oil from my antique hometown, Antakya, at the south of Turkey. These olive oil soap bars enriched with the natural essence oils are perfect complimentary items to the adorable Cotton towels.
