Story Behind the Art:

Cactus silk, also known as Sabra silk, is a natural fiber harvested from sustainable sources of Saharan Aloe Vera Cactus (the Aloe Vera plant being part of the Agave family).
The fabric is a 100% vegetable silk blend of extracted filaments from the aloe cactus grown in Morocco. It is sought for its quality, strength and beauty since millennia. The process to produce sabra silk has not changed for centuries. Once the Cactus plant is collected from the long agave plants, the long spiky leaves are crushed and the fibers washed and hammered. Then the leaves are soaked in water to separate the fibers & filaments and then they are spun and woven to make "silk thread" which are then dyed in different colors. The textile produced has a high elasticity and this makes Sabra-Silk free of wrinkles.
