Agave SilkAgave silk is also known as Vegan silk or as Sabra silk, which is it's Moroccan name. The fabric is a 100% vegetable silk blend extracted from the aloe cactus which is only grown in Morocco. Agave silk is renowned for it's beauty, it's strength and durability. We were intrigued to see the lengths of Agave Silk drying from rods nailed into the walls of houses in the medinas. Once dried, the strands are twisted together and dyed in a myriad of colours, prior to being woven into these gorgeous material lengths. Agave silk is renowned for it's beauty, it's strength and durability.
