Moroccan Pouf Stuffing
Our unstuffed Moroccan poufs can be filled with a variety of different materials depending on what you have available and the kind of finish you wish to achieve.
For a soft and light beanbag-style pouf, we recommend using a filling of polystyrene balls (60L per pouf), foam chips, old plastic bags or scrunched up newspapers. If using polystyrene beads it is advisable to use a liner, for example an old pillow case, and fill in the bath or outside as the beads have a tendency to escape!
To achieve a firmer, heavier pouf try using cotton, felt, or wool fabrics. We’ve also found that old towels and sheets work well – and it’s eco friendly too!
How To Stuff Your Moroccan Pouf
1. Make sure the material you are using is clean and dry
2. The zipper is located on the bottom of the pouf. Unzip the pouf and open it out to its full shape
3. Start by gradually filling the sides at the top of your pouf to ensure that all the nooks and crannies are fully stuffed. This will prevent dimples and bumps in the finished pouf
4. Continue stuffing evenly – add a layer of stuffing and push it down firmly (again, ensuring that the sides and seams are fully filled out) before moving on to add another layer
5.Continue until the pouf is full
The pouf will bed down over time and more filling can then be added as required.
SHOP MOROCCAN POUFS
So you’ve received your new Moroccan Pouf but have noticed there is a distinctive smell to it? This is because our Tan Brown Moroccan Pouf is made in Moroccan tanneries using 100% authentic goats leather. This particular type of leather and the leather dying process can sometimes result in a distinctive smell. Most of the time this smell will disappear by the time the our Moroccan poufs reach Australia, however from time to time this is not the case. To reduce the smell, we usually recommend our clients to leave the pouf in direct sunlight for a week or two or for those looking for a quicker solution we recommend you apply some professional leather conditioner on the surface of the leather. The chemical seeps into the pores of the leather which then removes odors and helps to bring out the sheen of the leather.
Mixing patterns can be lots of fun, but also a disaster if you have no idea where to start! Here are three main tips to consider when choosing patterns for your desired area:
- Use patterns of multiple scales: All of the patterns you use should be of different scale — too many small, tight patterns could confuse the eye in a space.
- Incorporate white to add negative space: White or other light neutrals allow the eye to take a breather from all that pattern goodness, and can add to the depth of a space. If you’re not into white, allow areas of open-blocked color to give the eyes a rest.
- Use colors that complement each other: Bright pink chevron with red leopard? Maybe not. Use non-competing colors in your pattern play.
