Coming straight from Morocco, the authentic Moroccan hand-made leather hassock commonly known as Poof is made out of genuine soft leather. The poof is so practical it can be used as a footstool, as a low seat next to your coffee table or in your children's room. These poufs are the perfect traditional touch you need in your house. Whether it is for indoor or outdoor, our sophisticated colour palette will meet all of your needs.
Our materials maintain the comfort and durability of the poofs.Zippered bottom opening for easy stuffing & cleaning.
The process starts with an animal hides that the specialist artisans will dye by hand, in a leather tannery. Putting it in several potions designed to help it become a finished leather. They strip the hide, rehydrate them and then put them into white vats filled with an aromatic concoction to make if soften.
Second step is the coloring. The artisans will dip the hides in natural vegetables dyes in another set of stone wells. They can put it in saffron, mint, henna and bark. Afterwards they will stretch it on a wooden frame to make it dry in the sun of the medina’s rooftops. It takes approximately 20 days to be ready for the next process.
After the leather has dried, it can finally be cut into shapes. Each one has at least 36 different pieces which are then hand sewn together with what we call ‘sabra silk’. This same silk that has been found in the Sahara desert, will be used to draw the Moroccan patterns on top of the pouf, entirely by hand.
Finally, once our poufs are finished, they are treated with natural products so that the strong smell of the leather decreases. Our treatment works by neutralizing the acidic and alkaline odor-producing particles and bring them into an odorless state. We treated them one by one also to keep their definitive color and to remove any dirt from the surface.

I love, love, love it! It’s absolutely beautiful, exactly as pictured. I stuffed it with some old pillows and it’s perfect. Shipped incredibly fast, too. I definitely recommend this brand!
Absolutely beautiful! I bought one for my friend for her nursery and she loves it too! I bought the light brown for myself, and now I’m thinking I may eventually purchase the dark for myself later. They do come unstuffed but I just used an old throw pillow for the top and old clothes for the rest.
The weight of this piece is substantial but not overly heavy. The silver color I ordered is perfect, not too charcoal or too bright
If you are in the market, this is the one to buy. I will buy another soon for the other side of the room.
