Cactus silk, also known as cactus cloth or sabra silk, is a natural fiber harvested from cactus plants. Renowned for its strength and flame-resistance, this traditional material has been used by Moroccans for centuries for a variety of textiles. Dyes are made from natural sources including poppies for red, saffron for orange and yellow, and indigo for blue.
Berber culture has an extensive catalog of symbols or tattoos each with its own meaning. The symbols used in these rugs tell a story of the women weavers and their lives in Morocco. Each rug is a unique handmade work of art.
