Packaged plastic-free. When the felted pebble is wet, the soap inside will lather through and the wool will gently exfoliate your skin. Beautiful and practical, the felted layer helps to keep your bathroom cleaner. As every bit of the soap is used, the felted pebble is a long lasting 100% plastic free alternative to shower gel and handwash. The felt shrinks in hot water, remaining tight around the soap bar as it is consumed. The felt covering is particularly useful for children and those who suffer from arthritis as the soap is less likely to slip from hands.

Handmade in a small workshop in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. Women hand-felt all the small wool balls, which are dried en mass in the sun and then hand-stitched together to create our coasters, mats and rugs. AURA QUE started working with the group in 2019. AURA QUE products are individually handcrafted and the unique story behind each AURA QUE product enhances its charm!
