 The Loofah Patch - NZ grown Loofah

Where do loofahs come from? Grown on a vine (not in the ocean as many people believe), the fibres are formed as the loofah fruit dries off, we carefully clean the loofah using just water (with no bleaches or chemicals) and hang to dry out in the Nelson sun. These are their natural colour (cream). If you would like to find our more about how loofahs are grown click here
