Cactus silk or sabra is a unique Moroccan textile made from super silky and shiny fibers extracted from Saharan Aloe Vera or the Agave cactus. The truth, however, is that Agave is not exactly a cactus, but a type of succulent. For this reason, you can’t actually say that sabra is made from cactus. But, since the name of the plant contains the word “cactus” itself, people naturally think this Moroccan textile is actually made from the prickly plant.
Not only is cactus silk not made of cactus, but it’s also not silk. But it’s a silky and shiny fabric that looks and feels just as elegant. It’s also a cruelty-free alternative to actual silk, which is made from silkworms.
The secret to the silkiness and shininess of this luxurious fabric lies in the fibers extracted from the plant. They are responsible for its durability, elasticity, and wrinkle resistance.
Who wouldn’t enjoy a soft and silky cushion made of natural fabric that doesn’t wrinkle, right? But, there’s more to it. Cactus silk is eco-friendly and its production doesn’t leave a carbon footprint. Agave cactus is the only resource required, along with a few other natural ingredients such as natural dye; since this plant grows really quickly, it doesn’t pose a danger to the environment.
