In the first few unhurried years of moving to the Bahamas I would spend more time under the water than above. The sponge was one of the many natural wonders to be admired, alongside the nosy barracuda and the uninterested nurse shark. In the less tropical waters of my shower I enjoy a luxurious moment with this natural sponge and my gentle body wash.
Our sponges grow in an array of different conditions – from sand and rocks to coral and nautical ropes. The difference in physical appearance and texture can be attributed to the range of different surfaces that these sponges are growing on. Of course that’s why we love them so much.
