Moroccan Cactus Silk Runner in Gold
From D J Green Eclectic
This Moroccan Cactus Silk Runner in Gold is a unique and beautiful textile product that has been handmade by skilled artisans from Morocco. It is made using cactus silk, which is derived from the fibres of the Agave Cactus plant. The silk has been dyed with natural plant-based dyes to create a vibrant yellow colour that is sure to brighten up any room.
The runner measures 301cm x 74cm, making it an ideal size for use as a decorative accent on a table, a dresser, or a console. It features a traditional Moroccan design, with intricate geometric patterns and symbols that have been woven into the fabric using a specialized technique. Unique to this piece are the scorpions that make up a section of the design.
The cactus silk material is known for its soft and luxurious texture, which makes it a joy to touch and feel. It is also lightweight and durable, which means that it can be used in a variety of settings, from a formal dining room to a casual living space.
Due to its age there are some colour variations throughout which only adds to the character to this wonderful kilim.
