Molly Heywood, a history lover and former secondary school teacher, is the founder of Heywood Home Company. She curates and creates from her private studio space in Marietta, Georgia. Seeking a change and a way to embrace her love for old, beautiful things, Molly transformed her passion for history and design into a new business venture in the summer of 2020. Established as an online storefront, Heywood Home Company began by offering a carefully curated selection of antique and vintage decorative items, alongside unique gifts and stationery, all imbued with a distinct European charm.

As the brand grew, so did its vision. Heywood Home Company has since expanded beyond its initial scope, evolving to include a creative studio that now boasts a range of unique, one-of-a-kind soaps from molds cast by Heywood herself. Each product in the range is a labor of love, aiming to mimic the attention to detail and craftsmanship that characterize the antique items inspiring her. This is evident in the line of Grand Tour Intaglio Soap Sets on offer. Not only are they molded from authentic Italian plaster intaglios cast from originals by master carvers like James Tassie, but each set has also been custom-scented to reflect the unique essence of one of each of the five major stops along the Italian leg of the European Grand Tour. This attention to detail is found across all her handcrafted products and extends to both of her other currently available soap product lines, the Staffordshire Mantel Dog Guest Soap Pairs, and the Elizabeth Collection Legacy Soaps, which commemorate the late British Queen Elizabeth II with a cameo silhouette of the late Queen herself and are cast in two parts for a Wedgwood-style final look.

Not content to stop there, Molly is constantly hunting and collecting new relics to cast and create more facsimiles in soap and wax and plans to expand these HHC creative offerings to include the relaunch of her popular Staffordshire Mantel Dog Candle line, and much more. Each product under the Heywood Home Company banner carries Molly’s signature touch – a deep appreciation and inspiration drawn from European antiques. Under her guidance, Heywood Home Company stands as a testament to the timeless beauty of historical artifacts, reimagined for today’s discerning clientele and made accessible to all, from the indulging antiquarian to the everyday host or hostess aiming to elevate the ordinary and add a touch of refinement to any setting.
