Create a comfortable stop to relax with our woven cotton pouffe, each pouffe is unique due to its handwoven property. It can be used as either an occasional chair or footrest, this compact pouffe makes a decorative and textual addition to any room.

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.
100% sheep wool.
Approx 60cm x 60cm x 20cm.
Our Azilal Rugs are a beautiful version of traditional Berber rugs handmade by women in their homes in the Azilal Mountain region of Morocco. The rugs are from wool from the sheep that wander the Azilal region. They feature simplistic geometric shapes and patterns with sometimes dashes of vibrant colours. The symbols that are found most often on the rugs are motherhood, childbirth and marriage, symbols for good fortune and prosperity are also common. Traditional rugs have no backing with the reverse side displaying the intricate knotting and weaving of the Artisan.
No Azilal rug is like another, they are not woven for commercial purposes and most of the time do not follow any given pattern. Though we do take requests for more of the design we have liked in the past.
Please note this is an old item (not vintage but can take years to makes its way from the loom to the market) and may have slight markings which show a full and well-loved life. We think these marks of history only add to their charm and desirability.
