Here's the challenge:
Turn a mass produced scrub mitt into a handmade good that does not cost more than the entire gift box of bath goods that carries it. A friend I made at the Menagerie show makes beautiful bath goods (soaps, lotions, oils). Everything in her kit is made by her, except for the scrub mitt. A mitt made in China is cheap, but it burns fossil fuels from the moment it is made, as it travels across the ocean, as it is trucked across the country. Not to mention, the fibers are synthetic (yuck). Yet, the mitt cannot be so costly that it competes with all the other products in the kit. . .so, how to make an affordable* homegrown mitt?
*Affordable; not something for nothing.
