Soft, reusable pack of 5 organic bamboo-cotton rounds, beautifully wrapped, Japanese style in an organic plant dyed muslin cloth. A perfect combination - pads are ideal for cleansing and removing make up; the soft muslin cloth is great for gentle facial exfoliation.
Pads are 2 ply - smooth on one side, fluffy on the other; a sustainable alternative to disposable cotton wool pads. Diameter of pads is 8cm. Muslin cloth measures approx. 32cm by 32cm and has raw hems, which allow it to crinkle beautifully.
The cloth has been tie-dyed with the ancient, therapeutic plant indigo; a dot of logwood and iron give a beautifully mottled effect. Plant dyeing fabric takes time, but is a sustainable way of producing unique colours and is kinder to the planet. Being plant dyed means each muslin cloth is unique, varying slightly in colour and pattern.
After use, pop items into a laundry bag, to avoid losing them in the machine. Pads become more absorbent after their first wash. Ideally use an eco-friendly detergent. While damp, gently stretch back into shape and air-dry. (They can be quickly dried on a radiator). Iron the pads, if you want them to be completely flat again. Please note - if used to remove makeup, such as mascara, pads will stain.
Each parcel is wrapped in tissue paper and tied with hessian string or plant dyed cotton trim. Packaging is plastic free - paper tape, recycled cardboard boxes. All of these are biodegradable. The corn starch bags are compostable.
I started making these for friends and family when realising that traditional cotton wool pads and makeup wipes can clog up waste pipes or end up in landfill. These items are truly sustainable as eventually they can be cut up and home composted.
I liked the idea of using the Japanese technique, Furoshiki and wrapping up the pads in a muslin cloth. These complement each other perfectly - the ideal partners for facial cleansing. Lovingly made, these would make a beauty treat for yourself of a special and unusual gift.
