What is Sisal?
Sisal is a completely natural vegetable fibre, made from the leaves of the agave cactus. The thick leaves are crushed in a mangle, where rollers remove the moist fleshy outer husk, leaving long off-white fibres, which are bundled together then hung in the sun to dry. The thickness and flexibility of the fibre depends upon the particular strain of the plant. Chinese Sisal produces a softer fibre which is spun into the coarse yarn, used for knitted and woven exfoliating gloves, mitts, backstraps and softer sisal spa brushes. Alternatively, the Mexican agave cactus produces a much firmer fibre, sometimes known as 'Mexican Fibre' which is ideal for the stiff bristle needed to stimulate the skin during dry body brushing.
