Pouffe Home Stuffing Guide

Our unstuffed Moroccan pouffes can be filled with a variety of different materials depending on what you have available and the kind of finish you wish to achieve. The pouffe is a versatile product and can be filled with almost anything, from polystyrene balls to old clothing and fabrics. It is an eco-friendly way to use up materials you may have stored at home which are waiting to be recycled. Your local furniture upholsterer should also be able to sell you some suitable stuffing if necessary.

To Stuff Your Pouffe

1- Make sure the material you are using is clean and dry.
2- The zipper is located on the under side of the pouffe. Unzip the pouffe and open it out to its full shape.
3- Start by gradually filling the sides at the top of your pouffe to ensure that all the nooks and crannies are fully stuffed.This will prevent dimples and bumps in the finished  pouffe.
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. Continue until the pouffe is full.  Before zippering shut the bag, place a piece of fabric or heavy paper between the stuffing and the zipper, so that tiny pieces of stuffing and/or dust do not work their way through the zipper when people use the pouffe.

Please avoid over-filling your pouffe as this could put strain on the zip when closing.
The stuffing in the pouffe will settle or pack down over time and more filling can then be added if so desired.

Suggested Materials for Stuffing

For a softer and lighter beanbag-style pouffe, we recommend using a filling of polystyrene balls, 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 pouffe try using cotton, felt, or wool fabrics. We've found that old towels and sheets work well.
