COVER INFO

Widely known as ‘cactus silk’ these Moroccan hand-woven pillow covers are lightweight and sturdy, adding the perfect punch of color and texture.

A weathered look is achieved using natural dyes and the elements. With symbols rooted in Berber tradition, each design is unique and determined by the artisan.
 
The process of their creation is a fascinating one: the spiky leaves from 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.
 
Colors are produced using natural vegetable and botanical dyes, so each one is chemical free.
All Natural vegetable and botanical dyes
