Story and ethos

Sop was conceived and created by Fiona Burrage, photographer and creative director of Nor–Folk. The idea was sparked by the renovation of the Water Cabin, Fiona’s holiday haven on the Norfolk Broads, as a way to embellish the guest experience. Her family’s deep connection to the local landscape is rooted in the brand’s visual and verbal language. And this intrinsic sense of place became its name – ‘Scents of place’ or Sop – a nod to Norfolk and the emotive fragrances it conjures. Inspired by meandering rivers, vast sandy beaches, and the serene spaces in between, each product’s name is also rooted in the region, adopting Norfolk’s dialect to summon the scent and experience.

Norfolk Wildlife Trust (NWT) envisions a future where wildlife is protected and enhanced through sympathetic management, and where people are connected with and inspired by Norfolk’s wildlife and wild spaces. This makes it the perfect charitable partner for Sop. ‘The combination of ethical sourcing, manufacturing and packaging of the products themselves, and the contribution made towards our work with each purchase, demonstrates a shared celebration of nature in Norfolk. We look forward to working with Sop as the range continues to grow.’ Pamela Abbott, chief executive, Norfolk Wildlife Trust.NWT is the oldest trust of its kind in Britain. In 1926 the trust purchased 400 acres of marsh at Cley on the north Norfolk coast to be kept as a bird sanctuary. This provided a blueprint for nature conservation which has now been replicated across the country. We are proud to support NWT in its vital work with our donation. With 35,000 members, the trust cares for over 50 nature reserves, protects habitats for the region’s much-loved species, provides nature education to young people, and runs hundreds of events every year.

Sop wants to put down strong roots to help us grow, which is why our sustainable, nature-nurturing approach is central to our philosophy. This is what we stand for: Low-carbon and local, we believe a successful brand is a sustainable one. Our aim is to leave as small a footprint as possible, and everything we make is bottled, printed, and fulfilled in Norfolk and made by Norfolk folk. We are working towards becoming a carbon-neutral company. Healing not harmful, we don’t compromise the planet for profit. All our products are certified organic, cruelty-free, and vegan. We don’t use any GM ingredients, parabens, SLS, silicones, mineral oils, palm oil, or artificial colours or fragrances, and we never will. Doing good – inside and out, our aluminium containers don’t just look good. We use this infinitely recyclable metal for its lightweight, non-corrosive properties, its relatively short landfill lifecycle, and its energy-saving appeal. From the ease with which it can be recycled to the reduced carbon emissions required to transport it, it’s the perfect pairing for our products.*Please note: our larger products are compatible with a reusable plastic pump. Making waves, we strive to challenge perceptions and celebrate authenticity. By embracing Norfolk vernacular and celebrating humble botanicals as sculptural art forms, we help others slow down, take notice, and truly appreciate the essence of a place. Caring for cherished places, we want to encourage a connection to the wildlife we love. All our orders are accompanied by a small selection of wildflower or sunflower seeds, with packaging illustrations by local artist Ruth Howes. And we are proud to be an ‘Investor in Wildlife’ in partnership with local organisation Norfolk Wildlife Trust.
