Welcome to Sleepy Hollow Handmade, where artisanal bath and shower products come to life in our home-based studio nestled in Mt. Lebanon. We are Tim and Joey Kapalo-Allen, the proud owners, creative minds, and loving husbands behind Sleepy Hollow Handmade.
Tim’s journey into soap-making began in the summer of 2019, fueled by a passion ignited by countless hours of watching online soap-making videos. In Tim’s inaugural year of soap-making, we generously shared our creations with family and friends, fine-tuning recipes and mastering new techniques. As COVID-19 reshaped our lives, Tim dedicated even more time to perfecting his craft. In August 2020, Sleepy Hollow Handmade proudly sold its first bar of soap.
In the years since, as Tim continued to innovate our soap offerings, Joey’s interest in the business blossomed. Initially offering a helping hand to Tim in the soap-making process, Joey soon found his niche in crafting bubble bath and shower steamers, adding a delightful dimension to our product lineup. His passion for experimenting with designs and scents has brought exciting new additions to our collection.
Since the summer of 2021, we’ve been participating in local markets, relishing the opportunity to connect with our customers and fellow creators in person. These events have become a highlight for us, providing a platform to share our enthusiasm for our products and engage with the vibrant community throughout the city.
Beyond our roles at Sleepy Hollow Handmade, Tim is a Speech-Language Pathologist in a local elementary school, while Joey works in corporate real estate. When we’re not immersed in the creative process of developing new products, we cherish our time together—whether it’s cooking and baking, shopping, enjoying the company of our loved ones and pets, or simply relishing the cozy ambiance of our home.
Join us on an exciting skincare journey at Sleepy Hollow Handmade, where passion, creativity, and a commitment to quality converge to bring you uniquely handcrafted indulgences for your bath and shower rituals.
ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS:
Welcome to Sleepy Hollow Handmade, where we specialize in skillfully-crafted, creative soaps and bath care items. Our soaps are meticulously crafted using the traditional cold process method, blending fats, oils, and skin-loving ingredients with water and sodium hydroxide.
All of our phenomenal creations are 100% vegan, formulated with only the highest quality ingredients. We believe in treating your body with the respect it deserves because, for us, bathing isn’t just about cleansing—it’s an act of self-care. Each time you use our soaps, we want you to be transported to a place of pure zen and happiness!
We approach soap-making as a delightful blend of baking, chemistry, and design—ensuring that every product is a feast for the senses. From beautifully inspired fragrances to fun, vibrant colors, each soap is a sensory delight.
In our commitment to sustainability, we focus on using eco-friendly materials. All our soaps and bath care items come in plastic-free packaging, supporting your efforts to reduce waste and live a more sustainable life. Our packaging is mostly recyclable and/or compostable, aligning with our dedication to minimizing waste wherever possible.
Moreover, we avoid problematic ingredients, such as animal-based ingredients and palm oil. Your conscious choice to use our products is met with our dedication to ethical and eco-friendly business practices.
Join us in this journey of mindful self-care with Sleepy Hollow Handmade— where every soap is a work of art, and every bath is a moment of bliss. Explore our range and embrace the magic of handcrafted indulgence!
