Sabra Silk Moroccan Cushion
Handcrafted in Morocco.
These stunning cushions are created by painstakingly
pounding down agave cacti’s to separate the fibres that are then
hand woven into cushions.
Each cushion is hand-dyed using natural vegetable dyes.
Please note each cushion is unique and there can be colour & stitching variations.
With stunning patterns of distinctive Moroccan allure,
the Sabra collection offers an evocative feast for the senses,
providing texture and colour to any interior setting.
To create these cushion covers,
the leaves from the Saharan agave cactus are harvested, hammered
and then soaked to release the fibres. Next, these fibres are hand-spun
using traditional techniques to make cactus silk.
Vegetable dyes are utilised to create vibrant colours,
making this product 100% natural. The silk is then combined
with camel wool and handwoven on a loom to create cactus silk rugs.
These are then turned into beautiful cushion covers.
Care instructions: Dry Clean Only
Do not spot clean as the liquid will affect the colour the natural
vegetable dyes and may cause the colour to run or transfer to other materials.
We recommend a fabric spray protector to be used.
This is a delicate handmade item and should be treated accordingly.
