Reusable Batik Facial Round(s)
Ready to clean your face and clear your conscience?
Say hello to the perfect addition to any eco-friendly skincare ritual and a sustainable alternative to single-use cotton pads or balls. These reusable facial rounds are handmade in Malaysia with bamboo terry on one side and leftover cotton batik fabric from MaryamBayam on the other.
We decided to use bamboo terry because it is comfortable to the touch, gentle on skin, durable, quick-drying, and very absorbent. Made from environmentally sustainable bamboo plants, this fabric is a fantastic option for those of you who care about the environment. It is naturally hypoallergenic and antimicrobial, making it suitable for sensitive skin too.
Textile waste in this context comes in the form of production off-cuts, samples, and end-of-rolls. These leftover fabric pieces can be repurposed in different ways to create something fresh and new for you and your home. We created this project with that in mind, and to give a product that is used daily in our skincare rituals a touch of heritage. It's a small way for us to show how much we appreciate the beauty of local fine art.
The creation of these reusable facial rounds is aligned with MaryamBayam's zero-waste philosophy to upcycle batik fabric scraps from her other striking design projects—keeping them out of the waste stream. Every piece Maryam produces still displays the distinctive qualities of batik Terengganu.
These rounds can be used to apply toners, astringents, or facial essences and remove makeup, oil- or balm-based cleansers, and masks. Be part of the solution and make the sustainable switch. By purchasing these rounds, you're directly supporting two women-owned local businesses. Maryam and I thank you for your support!
- Price listed is for one piece
- The pads measure roughly 6/7.5 cm in diameter. We do not give exact measurements, because that depends on the size of the leftover batik fabric.
- Each round will be selected at random. Please be aware that designs will change according to what is leftover from MaryamBayam. If you have a preference, please send a note along with your order or contact us via chat or social media for photos.
- Your Ritual: Use however you would like—with a toner, facial cleanser, makeup remover, or just water.
- Care: Please wash before first use. Hand wash cold with gentle soap between each use. Lay flat and allow it to air dry. Do note that bamboo terry becomes more absorbent after the first few washes.
- Materials: bamboo terry, cotton batik Terengganu.
Love this its soft on the skin and best of all I will never run out on facial rounds!
