Woven by villagers in their homes in the High Atlas Mountains, our cactus silk lumbar pillows showcase the detailed craftsmanship of traditional Moroccan textiles. Originally created as rugs but reimagined as pillows, the soft cactus silk – 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.
Given that these are all woven by hand, variations in color and design are inherent, which add to their authenticity and charm.

Filling Your Pillow:
Our cactus pillows are sold without filling but can be easily stuffed with the zipper at the bottom. You can use polyester mousse (pillow filling) for a fuller look, or less to use it as a seat cushion.
Never machine wash your pillow cover - the spinning motion of a washing machine will destroy the delicate fibers. Absorb any liquid spills with paper towels or a clean cloth. Dry cleaning is the best option for removing stains.
