Slip a soap into the Ayate crochet pouch!
Ayate is a fiber woven cloth that comes from the Maguey (agave salminae). It is a productive fiber has been used in the "Valle Del Mazquital" located in the central part of Mexico. Ayate has been known for its durability, natural origins and usefulness to natives but slowly is turning into an international sensation. Today, Ayate is used as an all-safe mildew resistant body exfoliator, designed to last up to about a year.
Maguey is predominately used in Mexico as a resource that provides over 100 different products which include clothing, food, medicine, firewood, furniture, and soap. The importance of the Maguey has prevailed through time and has become a dominant source of income for these natives. Once the Maguey is at a mature state, which can take up to ten years, the Ayate fiber then can be extracted along with other resources the Maguey produces. The process of making Ayate is labor-intensive and can take up to two to four days to complete. But because of the high demand for the resources that lay within the Maguey, it leaves little time for growth and ability to cultivate these plants. The manufacture makes sure that the indigenous people and Valle Del Mazquital are protected.

So I typically will purchase the Auromere Soap to go with this soap pouch because I like it, but also tested with non-natural soap, which tends to be quite a bit bigger. This pouch shrinks when it gets wet, and I can still fit the big soaps with no issue. It never stinks, molds, or feels weird after repeated use. This is a very simple product, but it beats any lufa anyday! (Posted on 10/17/12)
