These wonderful cactus silk pillow covers are hand-woven in Morocco. They are made of sabra, a natural fiber silk that comes from cactus. Sabra silk has been made with the same process for centuries by Berber women in Morocco. The cactus leaves are crushed and soaked in water. The fibers and filaments are separated, dried then woven into thread and dyed. Sabra pillows are handwoven on traditional looms and each pillow is a bit different.
