This light pink distressed pillow features authentic cactus silk tribal designs. The pillow has numerous Berber tribal tattoo designs, embroidered in light blue, white and brown, with a light border comprised of three lines of square dots. The pillow is framed by braided pink and grey 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.
