Kicking off another #colorfull week!! With a post I’ve hesitated to write as I don’t want to burst anyone’s #cactussilk pillows bubble-but knowledge is power, right??

And one thing I know for sure is that Morocco is a country filled with storytellers, which is one of its many charms. 😉

One well-told story involves the very popular and collectible “cactus silk pillows” (I have many myself as you can see) And they are soft and come in a rainbow of pretty pastel colors, so what’s the problem?
🌵
🌵
Well, they aren’t cactus silk at all. They are woven from silky rayon that mostly comes from China. The same rayon that’s used for tassels, embroidery, and Sabra cloth. 🌵
🌵
Maybe it doesn’t really matter: they are relatively inexpensive and so pretty after all. But there is more to the story, which is detailed out on the blog for @the.anou -beyond fair trade artisans cooperatives. I’ll share an excerpt below. 🌵
🌵
“In one of the most well known towns where sabra product is made there isn’t one single official cooperative. All the women work as individuals, who middlemen pit against each other to extract the cheapest price and turn around times. When we talked to the women, they laughed at the thought that they could sell their sabra pillows, which take them 5 days to make, for more than 50 MAD ($5 USD). That is 10 MAD a day ($1 USD per day) in a country where the minimum agricultural wage is 70 MAD per day. Oftentimes, the women are expected to pay for the material which comes out of the 50 MAD price they are paid. A middleman likely tells their buyers the artisans are happy with what they pay, and the women may very well be because they do not know any better. “

You can read the whole (fascinating) article on @the.anou website. Tell me what you think!?

Fuck it, why not do two in one day? This album is wonderful- it makes me feel like an old weary lonesome cowboy treading the Nevada wasteland shooting any bastard in my way. It's a cold, dark but in an odd way, fun album. The vocals are melancholic and wavering and the instrumentation is an authentic backing to the dark-folk country feel of this album. Honestly, Woven Hand's unique blend of gothic and country rules. #wovenhand #blushmusic #country #gothic #folk
