Kristle and Kimberly Jeffers Owners Handmade by Kae


Handmade by Kae is a company located in Barbados by two Trinidadian sisters Kristle Jeffers (left) and Kimberly Jeffers (right). 


The company all began in Kristle's kitchen after catching the soap-making bug from Kimberly who already had a business in Trinidad called Naturally You. After many tests by friends and family, reading books and watching many videos online and taking a hands-on soapmaking course Kristle decided to take the product to market. The rest is history.

On 10 March 2018 Handmade by Kae made its debut at the Brighton Farmers Market. Kristle will never forget calling Kimberly and their mom to tell them how excited she was to sell 11 soaps that day. That was simply the beginning.
Every element of the initial stages of Handmade by Kae was just as the name says. Handmade. The logo was done by Kristle. Labels designed by Kimberly. Early packaging done designed between the two of them and sourced with materials purchased in Barbados and later online. Through relationships built at the Farmers Market and local pop ups the business grew. Kimberly relocated to Barbados to continue the growth and it allowed the addition of lotions, body oils, candles, and even accessories. We were also able to incorporate our other skills such as gardening (Kristle), Painting (Kimberly) into various elements of the brand creating truly rich and rounded products. 
The support from the local market has been amazing. We have had the opportunity to retail our products at a number of locations around the island including the Crate, My Collection Barbados, Harrison's Cave, Walker's World, Butterfly Boutique and Ryan's Happy Place. These partners along with support from the National Cultural Foundation helped our business to grow and thrive.
Five years into our journey we were able to open a physical store located upstairs Gajah home store and it has been such a dream come true and a culmination of our hard work. We cannot wait to see what we do next! Thank you for keeping us company along the way!
