Cactus Silk Pillow (Brown Hourglass)


Woven by villagers of the Atlas Mountains, our pillow covers showcase the detailed handwork of indigenous Moroccan textiles. Originally created as rugs but redesigned as pillows, the textural canvas – locally known as “Sabra” – is woven on traditional wooden looms into patterns featuring ancient symbolic motifs. Hand dipped in dyes of spectacular hue, the fabric is then sun bleached and air dried to achieve its unique, burnished character.
