The cochineal dye used to create the dusty rose color is a natural dye made from the dried shells of the cochineal insect which are parasitic to the prickly pear cactus (vegans beware). Cochineal has a long and revered history of use among the Maya and once discovered by colonizers it quickly became a coveted trade item second only to silver. Today Cochineal is experiencing a resurgence in use as many synthetic red dyes have been found to be carcinogenic.
The jaspe designs are of diamonds and prickly pear cactus pads. A beautiful combination of dusty rose and white in a generous length of nearly 80".
