Description

Natural, unbleached – little soap bags which are long-lasting and a perfect accompaniment to Wikaniko Soaps. Simply choose your soap, pop it in the bag, and then use all over for a gentle exfoliating clean.

Sisal plants consist of a rosette of sword-shaped leaves about 1.5 to 2 metres tall. Young leaves may have a few minute teeth along their margins, but lose them as they mature.

The sisal plant has a 7-10 year life-span (longer in Mexico where growth is slower) and is usually cut first after 2-3 years and then at 6-12 month intervals. A typical plant will produce 200-250 commercially usable leaves in its life-time (hybrid varieties up to 400-450 leaves), and each leaf contains an average of around 1000 fibres.

The fibre element, which accounts for only about 4% of the plant by weight, is extracted by a process known as decortication.

In East Africa, where sisal is produced on an estate basis, the leaves are in the main transported to a central decortication plant after which the fibre is dried, brushed and baled – for export or for use in the domestic mills. In Brazil it is mainly grown by small-holders and the fibre is extracted by teams using portable raspadors.

East African sisal, being washed and decorticated, is considered to be superior in quality to Brazilian sisal (although the latter is more than adequate for the manufacture of agricultural twines and general cordage and is used domestically in craft paper production) and, in normal times, commands a significant price premium on the world market.

    I love these bags, they’re a great way of keeping soap bars safe, and add a level of exfoliation if you use your soap whilst still in the bag, I’ve put some little hooks on the wall by my shower which I hang all my bars in their bags on

    Handy little product, I use mine to collect all the leftovers from the bars of soap, giving them a second lease of life.

    Fantastic to stop you loosing grip of your soap in shower. Gives great exfoliation and can be left to hang to dry. A simple and great value item.
