Cactus Silk Cushion
cushion is made from the natural vegetable fibres found in the long agave cactus.
The sustainable Saharan aloe vera cactus (part of the agave family) provides the natural fibres to make this silk, also known as “vegetable silk” or “Sabra silk.”
This plant-derived cactus silk
has been made with the same process for centuries.
The leaves are pounded and soaked until the fibres separate. The fibres are spun and dyed by hand to create a silky, but very strong thread.
It is an entirely vegan craft rooted in a sustainable process since cacti grow quickly and require very little to survive.
