Introducing our stunning collection of Cactus Silk cushions, handmade by local artisans in Morocco. This beautiful collection is a harmonious blend of elegance, ethical craftsmanship and bohemian charm.
Each pillow measures approximately 45 x 50 cm.
Due to their handmade nature, no two cushions are exactly alike, making each one a unique work of art.
So what is Cactus Silk?
Cactus silk, otherwise known as Sabra Silk is loomed by hand, from fibres found in the Agave Cacti or Saharan Aloe Vera, which is a plant that can be found in the Sahara Desert. This beautiful Moroccan textile is so special due to its distinctive silky touch and the intricate, natural way it is traditionally assembled.
In order to keep the material as natural as possible and to not damage the material, the cactus silk is then coloured with vegetable dyes. This is a very timely process but it pays off when the final outcome is a beautifully vibrant coloured material that is free from any unnatural elements or chemicals!
