Our cactus silk collection has been so well received. Each cushion has been hand finished and so all different & unique.
The process for making Cactus Silk has been the same for centuries.
The spiky leaves are crushed and soaked in water to separate the fibers and filaments, they are then washed and dried and spun to make silk threads.
It is traditional to keep the fabric as natural as possible, so many producers will only ever dye cactus silk with natural vegetable dyes. This process can take a long time, but when it is completed the colors are incredibly vibrant and beautiful. Some of our designs are on the website but for picture or video of my whole range you can just DM me. - 8 hours ago
