This bright and colorful one-of-a-kind cactus silk pillow was handwoven by the nomadic Berber tribe of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. It features a white background with blue, beige and yellow embroidered symbols of traditional Berber tattoos indicative of the family who made the pillow and the region where it was created.
All cactus silk is dyed using natural vegetable dyes which allow for bright and colorful pastel and earthy hues. The weaving process is done entirely by hand on looms. Since the silk is lightweight, supple and sturdy, it is mostly used to create small scale carpets, poufs and pillow covers.
We love that each individual cactus silk has a story to tell about its origins and heritage. These pillows are a chic global accent that compliments any space.
This pillow is approximately 18”x18” and comes stuffed with a removable down/feather insert enclosed by a zipper.
Our cactus silk pillows are authentic and high quality representatives of Berber craft sourced in the Moroccan souk. Due to their entirely handmade creation process, minor imperfections and color variations may be visible that speak to the handmade process and tell the story of its creator. No two pillows are exactly the same.
All of our textiles are handcrafted using the finest natural materials. We recommend a light vacuum or warm iron for general upkeep. Please avoid direct or prolonged sunlight exposure. To treat any stains, blot any liquids immediately. Professional dry cleaning recommended.
