Sandy light Taupe- White details Back is plain with no embroidery
I fell in love with this unique cultural textile, Saharan cactus silk. Each one has it's own sense of character. The perfect statement piece for your lounge, bed or bench seat.
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 unique cushion pieces.
Approx. 50 x 50 cm (insert is not included with online purchase)
We recommend using an insert approximately 5cm bigger to ensure a nice plump cushion.
These pieces are handmade art pieces for your home and need to be treated as so.
Dry Clean Only

This item is hand woven and dyed. No chemicals are used to fix the colour. Do not spot clean. Liquid will affect the colour of the natural vegetable dyes and may cause the colour to run/transfer to other materials. We recommend a fabric spray protector.
Handmade in Morocco by a small, local group of women in Tangier.
