This soft black pillow features authentic cactus silk tribal designs. The pillow features numerous Berber tribal tattoo designs, with a red, yellow and white design in the middle, pink hourglass shapes, a dotted white border of four lines. Black shade, but not too rich. 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.
All sales on Silver Sahara abide by fair trade principles, and benefit the native artisans to help ensure continuation of traditional craft techniques.
