Talking with Shana of Bathvs

We’re always happy to see our tenants build and expand their business here. One example is Bathvs, a soap and body products company that started right here and is now getting some national recognition. Shana, the creator of Bathvs, was recently interviewed by the country’s leading soapmaker’s blog–there are some beautiful photos of her Pajama Factory studio and a nice mention of the creative community at the Pajama Factory!

Shana sells her soap both online and through retail locations, as well as at our own Farmers and Artisans Winter Market each Saturday from 10:00 to 2:00.

Interested in building your own dream with us? Let us help you make it happen!

Talking with Shana of Bathvs

A few weeks ago, we received a kind message on Facebook from Shana of Bathvs (pronounced Bath-us). Shana was the winner of our Facebook Photo of the Week in June of 2014, and explained to us how the win encouraged her to push forward with her business.

Taiko at the Pajama Factory

taiko

If you’re ever in Japan in August, you’ll likely hear the night air filled with the sound of the Taiko, the big wooden drums from every neighborhood ‘matsuri’ or festival. It’s a wonderful sound and soon you’ll be able to experience it first-hand at the Pajama Factory!

Come down this Saturday for a free workshop from 1pm – 3pm!
