Our Mayan loofahs are sourced from small family farms in Guatemala.
These loofahs are cut to either 5 or 10 inch lengths and range from thin 2.5" to a wide 4.5" in diameter. We sort them by their thickness.
Compared to the hard South-East Asian traditional loofahs, these are not as hard and slightly less dense which makes them a good choice for soap makers and as a bath loofah.
We receive these compressed in bails and reconstitute them by dipping them in water and then letting them dry. You can save a little bit by purchasing the loofahs compressed.
