Sabra product is incredibly popular. However, sabra is not a real material and is often rayon or a full synthetic. The Anou community is experimenting using more bamboo and other more sustainable fibers to replace sabra. Bamboo is infinitely softer than the cotton rayon sabra commonly found in Moroccan markets, so it is perfect for a pillow. This is one of Tithrite's experimental pillows using bamboo yarns.
