  • Complex geometric design includes a central diamond shape, a common symbol used to represent and tell the stories taking place within a tribe's kasbah walls, interior passages and individual dwellings
  • All-over sequin pattern adds the boho chic sparkle you love, though metal embellishments were incorporated into handmade items as protection to help deflect the evil eye 
  • All four edges are detailed in a black and white seam that matches the corner tassels
  • Back of pillow is a solid red woven textile with simple single thin stripes in black and green providing a reversible dual-sided design that makes it easy to switch when you are ready for a change
  • Natural wool is dyed with plant colors that make the materials earth friendly including poppy, saffron, mint, etc.
  • Measurements are 17 inches x 17 inches, a versatile size that fits easily into existing ensembles or alone on sofas, chairs, beds, window seats or other surfaces

Cushy wool pillows add more than sparkle to your space with texture and a classic Zemmour red color palette. Intricate geometric designs visualize stories of tribal life in the kasbah, from marriages, births, and deaths to movements of the entire clan. Woven textiles like those used to make this pillow were often created as journals and diaries of the women who weaved them spontaneously without a paper pattern to follow.
