Light yellow cactus silk Moroccan pillow, stuffed and ready to use. This yellow pillow features authentic cactus silk tribal designs. The pillow has numerous Berber tribal tattoo designs, embroidered in light turquoise blue and white, with a blue border comprised of three lines of square dots. The pillow is framed by subtle braided red and yellow cotton thread, and has a side zipper. Sourced directly from a women's cooperative in Boujad, a small village near Beni Mellal in central Morocco.
Sabra silk, or cactus silk, is made of agave fibers spun to produce a durable silk with a natural sheen to it. The silks are hand-dyed using natural dyes. Set in 100% hand-dyed natural cotton. This pillow was created in the 2000s. All natural dyes are used to create the colors. Handmade by native Moroccan Berber weavers. One of a kind.
