Our unstuffed moroccan ottomans can be filled with a variety of different materials depending on what you have available and the kind of finish you wish to achieve.
For a soft and light beanbag-style ottoman, we recommend using a filling of polystyrene balls (60L per pouf), 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 pouf try using cotton, felt, or wool fabrics. We’ve also found that old towels and sheets work well – and it’s eco friendly too!
How To Stuff Your Moroccan Ottoman:
- Make sure the material you are using is clean and dry
- The zipper is located on the bottom of the ottoman. Unzip the ottoman and open it out to its full shape
Start by gradually filling the sides at the top of your pouf to ensure that all the nooks and crannies are fully stuffed. This will prevent dimples and bumps in the finished ottoman
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 ottoman is full
The ottoman will bed down over time and more filling can then be added as required.
