Moroccan sabra silk cushions
Our Cactus Silk covers are all the way from the Berber villages in Morocco. Cactus silk, also known as Sabra silk is loomed by hand from fibres found in the Agave cacti or Saharan aloe Vera found in the Sahara desert. The cacti’s leaves are crushed and soaked until the fibres of the plant disperse. The fibres are then spun by hand. To keep the textile as natural as possible the cactus silk is then coloured with vegetable dyes. Once the material has been dyed and dried it is then woven on looms.
Cactus silk is completely vegetarian and more often vegan. The textile is eco friendly and does not leave a carbon footprint on the environment. The ultimate sustainable purchase!
