100% cactus silk with cotton warp

This large cactus silk rug is a vintage find with even ranks of Amazigh tribal motifs within a border. The indigo fabric has gained a subtle patina with age, yet much life remains in the colors. 

Cactus silk, also known as sabra silk, is a fine fiber harvested from the Saharan aloe vera cactus and used for weaving fabrics known for their metallic sheen and vibrant colors. It is vegan and cruelty-free silk.

  • This object comes from an Artisanal Association for Divorced Women in Fez, Morocco that benefits widows and divorcees and promotes traditional weaving practices.
