What is cactus silk?
Cactus silk is a fabric created from a Saharan agave cactus. The artisans harvest the thorny leaves, hammer them and then soak them to release the fibers. After that, they spun the fibers by hand using a traditional process to eventually make cactus silk. Which is then combined with camel wool and hand woven on a loom to create this stunning Moroccan style.
Local villagers harvest the leaves of the Sabra cactus plant for the filaments inside. While the yarn-dyed palette is sourced from all-natural botanical pigments. Each cushion cover gets its uniqueness and burnished when washing and drying in the Moroccan sun.
