All of our loofah is grown in the USA. Because it's a natural product, the diameter of some pieces is much larger than others so each order may vary in diameter. Our natural loofah come in a compressed state. Due to the nature of dying the colored loofah, they will arrive to you fully expanded. All of our colored loofah products are carefully hand dyed with bird and chinchilla safe colorants. Colors may vary slightly from piece to piece, as the natural fibers of the loofah may affect coloring slightly.
