This Kilim Pouffe is made from a recycled rug which gives it a wonderful second life as a pouffe.
A beautiful neutral tone rug turned into a square pouffe.
All of our pouffes come unstuffed, they can be filled through the zip opening with a range of materials, from polystyrene balls, plastic bags, old clothing & fabrics. It is an eco-friendly way to use up recyclable materials from around your home.
For a soft and light beanbag-style finish use polystyrene balls, foam chips, newspapers or plastic bags. For a firm finish use heavier materials like cotton, felt, or wool fibres; old bedding and towels work well. Alternatively, a local furniture upholsterer should also be able to sell you some suitable stuffing.
Double Knotted by Hand on Loom.

Kilim, is of Turkish origin, denoting a flat woven pile using fewer textiles, whose many variations share a common heritage and are practised all across Turkey, the Balkans and throughout the Arab World. The lightweight weave makes these rugs perfect for use in the hot summer months and is embraced by tribal weavers. Kilim rugs are a startling contrast to their kin Berber rugs, which will be found adorning the tents of tribes in the desert. These thinner rugs lend themselves to the hotter climates and can be used to create entire room carpets.
