These Moroccan cactus silk cushion covers are handmade in Morocco. They are made from sustainable Saharan agave cactus silk,camel wool and vegetable dyes. The spiky leaves of sustainable Saharan agave cactus are harvested, hammered and then soaked to release fibers. The fibers are then hand spun using traditional processes to make cactus silk.The silk is then combined with camel wool and handwoven on a loom to make cactus silk rugs that in turn are made into these vintage cushion covers.
Agave plants are especially huge in Morocco, they are succulent plants that you can peel, the process produces threads. These threads are then colored with gorgeous vegetal dyes. Then the cactus silk pillows are woven on traditional weaving looms by hand so each pillow is a bit different. This makes each and every one extra special!
Sizes, colour, patterns and details on the pillow may vary due to the handmade nature of the product. Pillowcase does not include the insert. Please take extra care when inserting the pillow.
