Handmade Crocheted Maguey Exfoliating Body Sponge
This handmade sponge can be used anywhere – from bathroom to kitchen. Soft enough for face, body or gently washing surfaces of delicate tableware. It is durable, naturally mildew resistant, and made entirely from natural materials.
All great, right? The story of how your sponge was made is even better. Our exfoliating body sponge is known locally in Mexico as maguey, but you might better recognize the name agave. Whichever one, the plant is harvested and stripped by hand, washed in mild detergent and water and then dried in the sun. Only when it's dry is it ready to be handbrushed over a giant biznaga cactus. The string is then hand rolled to desired thickness and crocheted by hand to create each sponge. The sponges are then stuffed with additional maguey for a natural, organic piece and feature a top loop for hanging. These put your plastic loofah to shame.
Dimensions: approx. 6" diameter
Care: When not in use, it should preferably be kept in a dry place.
Every order includes complimentary gift wrap and a personalized handwritten card.
