These 4” hand-knit jute dish scrubbers are based on a Japanese pattern called a tawashi. The natural jute texture provides an excellent non-marking abrasion to remove some of the most stubborn, stuck-on food. Unlike most other dish scouring pads these are 100% natural and can go straight into the compost at end-of-life.
Otters & Acorns owner/maker, Nicole Desroches, is such a skilled craftsperson that she couldn't fit all of her skills under one brand umbrella. Beginning her crafting with Pixielations making free-play toys and games for children, then expanding into hand-painted peg dolls, she wanted a way to separate her passion for fibre arts from her children's products and launched Otters and Acorns as the home for all things knit, crocheted, woven etc, always using 100% natural fibres so all products are compostable when they've served their purpose.
