Our Cactus Silk Cushion Covers are individually handmade by artisans in Morocco and each one is unique. Made from heavy woven material, a mixture of sabra and cactus silk, they will hold their shape. Cactus silk, a vegetable silk or Sabra silk, is part of the agave family. It is a plant-derived silk harvested from Saharan aloe vera cacti in northern Morocco. After the silk fibres are taken from the plants, they are washed, dyed, dried and then hand-spun. This creates a unique a story of a fabric, soft as silk, which is where the name is derived from, the fabric that whispers luxury, comfort and elegance. Cover size 60 cm x 40 cm approximately.
Spot clean with a damp, slightly soapy cloth. Do not machine wash. We recommend, dry cleaning if needed by accredited dry cleaner.
Cover only, insert not supplied. We recommend a feather filled insert for the "chop" look that is 5 cm larger than the cushion cover.
