This soft red throw rug features authentic cactus silk tribal designs. The diamond shapes are indicative of the evil eye, with the rug offering protection from ill will. Sourced directly from a women's cooperative in Morocco's Atlas Mountains. 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 rug was created in the early 2000s."
