The birth of Biggs & Featherbelle:
Sisters Kelly and Kasey Evick created Biggs & Featherbelle in January 2003. A magazine article inspired the pair to make 'melt and pour' glycerin soaps as Christmas presents. With backgrounds in the Fine Arts and Fashion, the two had fun creating unique recipes, packaging and clever names for each item. The gifts were a big hit.
Their family had always been proponents of alternative healing practices and consumers of natural beauty products. So, it seemed fitting to continue exploring the benefits of botanicals. The innocent investigation soon turned to obsession. The sisters quit their day jobs and devoted every hour to research and invention, striving to create the products they couldn't find on the shelves. Fueled by encouragement from friends and family, the word spread to local festivals, then regional fairs and eventually in stores throughout the U.S.
Today, armed with the collected experience and knowledge of essential oils and other critical ingredients, the mission is to create products with a purpose. Paying close attention to packaging and presentation of the company, the focus is on specific solutions for all skin types. Biggs & Featherbelle is committed to providing products that everyone enjoys and benefits from.
Biggs & Featherbelle are somewhat fictional. Biggs (formerly Bubba) is a character inspired from our kitty cat named Diesel. Featherbelle is a fusion of Kelly & Kasey. Biggs & Featherbelle represent a broad spectrum of people from manly tough to girly sweet. The characters were developed and illustrated by our friend Brian Dugan (who prefers to stay behind the scenes).
