Black Owl Loofah
Loofah-Art is a completely eco-friendly, 100% biodegradable product, made from a sustainable agricultural crop.
Loofah-Art loofahs have a a looser weave and longer fibre length than most other loofahs commonly used for the body, resulting in a more resilient and less abrasive loofah. They are tough enough to clean soiled pots and pans and gentle enough to clean fruits and vegetables without destroying the healthy nutrients found in their skins.
A Loofah-Art sponge will last far longer than most other kitchen scrubbers and are also machine washable. They aerate dry and stay fresher longer eliminating any souring bacteria residue and odor.
Contrary to common belief, loofah is a vegetable, not a sea sponge!
Originating in Asia, this gourd-like plant is closely related to the cucumber family. It is grown in sub-tropical temperatures and requires annual replanting.
Once the plant naturally dries on the vine, it is harvested and the outer skin is peeled off to expose their inner fibers, which form the natural loofah sponge.
The loofah is then hand seeded, washed and left in the sun to dry naturally after which it is hand fabricated into our whimsical and functional products.
Because of their longer and finer textured fibers, Loofah-Art®products are the softest and most resilient natural sponges outlasting most scubbers on the market!
