The process of their creation is a fascinating one: the spiky leaves from sustainable Saharan agave cactus are harvested, hammered, and then soaked to release fibers. The fibers are then hand spun using traditional processes to make cactus silk. The silk is then combined with camel wool and handwoven on a loom to make cactus silk rugs that in turn are made into these vintage Moroccan Berber cushions. Colors are produced using natural vegetable and botanical dyes, so each one is chemical free
