The pillow has numerous Berber tribal tattoo designs, embroidered in black, red, turquoise, and purple, with a turquoise border comprised of three lines of square dots.

Sabra silk, or cactus silk, is mythical fabric 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.
