Agave Fiber Hand Brush (Escobeta)


Why We Love It
This agave fiber brush is a multipurpose tool is beautiful, functional and reminds us of our abuelita’s kitchen. Beyond nostalgia, this brush is so handy. The hard-textured bristles provide an effective clean, without scratching surfaces. Use for home cleaning, as a vegetable wash or to wash your molcajetes, mortars, pots, pans and anything cast iron. Unlike plastic, the agave fibers on this brush will not melt on hot surfaces. 

This brush was designed to get the job done right without a fuss.

These natural household items are made with love by an indigenous-owned cooperative dedicated to the sustainable and artisanal production of brushes and sponges from vegetable fibers, such as agave henequén, agave lechuguilla, and ixtle de maguey. For over 25 years, the community has produced personal and home care products while employing local artisans, mostly women.

The products are made using 100% natural fibers obtained from different parts of Mexico. Each item is handmade by artisans, carvers, and weavers, creating a bond of a sustainable economy. They also take great care to source raw materials sustainably: the wood is upcycled from furniture makers’ scraps, and fibers are harvested sustainably according to ancestral traditions that have allowed agave plants to flourish for millennia.

Wash with soap and water. Let it fully dry between uses. We recommend using the provided twine loop to hang dry it in between uses.

100% plant-based and made from agave fibers.

Great Brush

I order this escobeta to clean my molcajete and it works great to get into all the nooks and crannies. Well made and also love the bright colors!

Good for caked on food!

This is good for non stick pans. It's good for scrubbing off stuck on food without scratching your nicer pans and pots.
