Pillows from Plants?

Want to know the skinny on this environmentally friendly silk?  Moroccans have been using this traditional process for centuries. After being hand-picked, the spiky leaves of the cactus are harvested, hammered, and then soaked to release fibers.  The fibers are then handspun to create the thread, and vibrant dyed colors sourced from vegetables and plant-based pigment.  Cactus silk is combined with camel wool and handwoven by Moroccan artisans to bring sustainability and style into your home.
