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.

The Beni Ouarain tribes produce very easily identifiable rugs that are now quite commonly seen in Europe and further afield. Boasting a beautiful ivory background colour and adorned with geometrical diamond patterns in black or brown, the classic 'Beni' is made from undyed soft natural wool with a medium to a thick pile. It is warm, sumptuous and durable and each one is the result of several months of work by a Berber woman from the Middle Atlas region to the east of Fez, Morocco. Beni Ouarain rugs have largely maintained their original patterns and colour over the years, standing out from other carpet types by virtue of this. They are considered to be the most prestigious carpets produced in Morocco and have become very popular in Europe in recent years due to their simplicity and adaptability to interiors of modern or traditional design.
