Cactus Silk Pillows

Our authentic vintage pillow covers are hand-woven in Morocco and it is made from Cactus Silk, obtained from Saharan Aloe Vera Cactu.
It's made by crushing the spiky leaves and soaking them in water to separate the fibres and filaments, then they are washed and dried and spun to make silk threads. To ensure the fabric is as natural as possible, threads are dyed using all-natural dyes like saffron. Dying the threads is a very long process, but when it is completed the colours bright and beautiful. Cactus Silk pillows are woven on traditional weaving looms by hand so each pillow is  different, natural variations in color and ancient motifs, minor flaws and imperfections are characteristic of these materials.
