Welcome to Fig & Willow, our ‘proper bricks and mortar independent shop’ based in Ripon, North Yorkshire.
After finishing drama school and hitting the world of auditioning I used to work in a lovely shop in York in which time I decided the performing arts career was not for me and I wanted to start my own retail business!
As an ambitous 18 year old with a van I bought £500 of stock and
started selling products at fairs and local markets until at 20 signed the lease on my lovely shop in Ripon.
5 years have gone by since opening Fig & Willow in which time I have created my own Bath & Body collection using only natural ingredients, all made in the UK which you can find here.
Each product is handwrapped by us in store before sending out to you lovely folk!
We also stock other fairtrade and made in the UK prodcuts such as bamboo socks, greetings cards and bathbombs which we have carefully hand picked to compliment our own products.
I have a truly fabulous team in Ripon consisting of 3 lovely 'Figgies' - Becky, Alice & Katrina alongside my grandma who pops in with the coffees! My mum and Dad are always on hand to help out and my husband and business partner is the king of the paperwork, so it really is a local Family Business!
I hope you enjoy browsing my website and any questions you may have please don't hesitate to ask!
