This pillow cover contains intricate two-tone embroidery and cross-stitching in a traditional compass motif.  Variations on a compass emblem are often found in Amazigh art due to their significance to nomadic tribes, some of which transverse the Sahara Desert on trade routes. 

There is an opening in the back to insert a cushion or sew in padding. 

  • This item comes from a small shop in the ancient medina of Fez, Morocco selling textiles hand-embroidered by Berber women.
