NEW YORK — Renay Arbour and Annie Walker discovered a welcome relief from the frantic pace of a model’s life during a two-month modeling stint in Tokyo: the pleasures of the Japanese bathing ritual.
"We were exploring the bathhouses there and developed a love for bath products," said Walker. The duo was so inspired, in fact, they began creating their own bath products during their free time. "First we started doing bath teas, mixing together different herbs," said Arbour. But their hobby quickly turned into a business idea and also provided inspiration for their new company’s name, Deep Steep.
