  • Hand Made in Sri Lanka from Coir coconut fibre, each brush measures approx. 10cmx 7cm, excluding the loop. 
  • Easy to grip, the hand held brush is suitable for most of your washing-up needs and can replace plastic brush alternatives. 
  • Rinse thoroughly before first use. Immerse and use in warm water with washing-up liquid. 
  • Strong enough for scrubbing pans, small enough to reach into cups. Effective for cleaning crockery, cutlery, pans and woks.
  • To keep brush fresh between uses, rinse and shake out excess water and any food particles. Hang to dry from the metal loop. The galvanised metal core will not rust. 
  • Occasionally soak in hot water with washing-up liquid and air dry to freshen brush.
  • Will last for months in normal use and when worn out can be recycled.

Coconut

  • The coconut palm tree or Cocos nucifera is known as the “Tree of Life” for its abundance of uses from food & oils to brushes and mats. 
  • It is a sustainable, robust resource. 
  • Coconuts palm trees produce a crop of up to 20 coconuts every month up to 100-200 coconuts a year. 
  • Coconut fibre (coir fibre) and coconut husks are a 100% natural, renewable & biodegradable by-product of coconut harvesting for the coconut food and oil industry. 
  • Using Coir fibre and Coconut husk in household products is an environmentally responsible way of utilising a by-product that might otherwise be burnt. 
  • Coir is the fibrous material found between the hard, internal shell and the outer coat of the matured brown coconut husk. The strong fibre (used for brushes) is separated from the weaker soft fibre (used in mattresses) & coir dust (coco peat). 
  • Coir remains stiff when wet, and its hydroscopic properties means that it holds liquids well. 
  • Coir is naturally free of bacteria, plant disease, fungal spores, weeds, seeds and pathogens.

Loofco Production Standards 

  • Coconut is a sustainable plant-based resource that is biodegradeable.
  • Metal core of brushes is galvanised iron that will not rust & is recyclable .

  • Individual production workers take pride in ensuring attention to product details.
