Old Georg Soapfactory

To the best of our knowledge, Old Georg Soapfactory is the first soapfactory in Setomaa in history. We make ecological soap by hand, and have developed a selection of 15 different Seto soaps. We also take special orders for soap. 

As there has been so much interest in soap making, we now offer soap making workshops. These are particularly suited to students. Soap made during the workshop will be sent to the participants by post 3-4 weeks after the workshop.  The minimum number of people in a group is 15. The Old Georg Soapshop sells soap, soap dishes and other Setomaa souvenirs.

Vahtraoru talu, Kolossova küla, Värska vald, Põlva maakond

Getting there

To get to Vahtraoru Farm, drive 10 km from Värska in the direction of Saatse, then the road turns right before the Piusa River onto South Estonia's new and most beautiful raod "Via Rossia" that you must follow for another 2 km, where you will arrive in "Another World". The route is particularly enjoyable as you have to pass through Russia two times -- visa free.
