These Moroccan imported cactus silk pillow covers add instant interest and texture. Each one is hand adorned with different patterns and markings in complimentary accent colors. No two are alike, so you WILL NOT find a matched pair (see last photo for the variance). Faded patches and stray threads are not flaws, but only add to the handmade authenticity. These pillows bring an air of casual sophistication to your space. They may even have your guests asking about all of your cultural travels! If purchased without an insert, a 20” pillow insert is recommended.
*Designer Tip: Try layering multiple pillows, grouped together they'll make a bigger statement and be much more impactful.
The process of their creation is a fascinating one: the spiky leaves from sustainable Saharan agave cactus are harvested, hammered and then soaked to release fibers. The fibers are then hand spun using traditional processes to make cactus silk. The silk is then combined with camel wool and handwoven on a loom to make cactus silk rugs that in turn are made into these vintage cushion covers. Colors are produced using natural vegetable and botanical dyes, so each one is chemical free.
