These are the questions you ask yourself when you receive an empty pouf. The Moroccan pouf is usually delivered without padding and it can be annoying to not know how to fill it when you receive it.
Everyone has their own preference as to how a pouf should be placed. Some people will find a soft pouf comfortable. Others prefer a sturdy pouf. Whether it’s a round leather pouf or a woolen berber pouf, the method remains the same. In this article, we explain the complete process to fill your new Moroccan pouf perfectly.
What to fill a Moroccan pouf with?
You can use all kinds of materials to fill the poufs.
For a firm seat, we recommend using old materials such as old clothes, sheets or unusable towels. These materials give the pouf a filled shape and a full appearance. This is a great way to tidy up your closet.
For a light, soft seat, you can stuff the floor cushion with newspapers or plastic bags. You can also use polyester, polyether, foam blocks or natural fibers. These materials are available at fabric stores.
Important: Make sure the materials you choose are dry and clean.
3 steps to fill a Moroccan pouf :
With these 3 easy steps, we explain how to fill your Moroccan pouf:
- Open the pouf with the zipper and shape it into a filled pouf.
