A knitted sponge made of sisal fibers

In Mindelo, Cape Verde, Nadira has opened a plastic-free store. Here, she knits natural sponges from sisal, a fiber extracted from the Agave plant, which grows everywhere in Cape Verde. Very resistant, sisal has long been used for making ropes, fabrics or carpets. Nadira’s sponges are made with only one material: sisal, and without any additives. No risk of contaminating the dishwater, unlike synthetic sponges.
