It takes about 40 hours for a skilled artist to produce and embroidered a Moroccan pouf. The pouf is very versatile, and can be used in any room as extra seating, an end table, or a foot rest. They look beautiful on their own or in multiples, and with any style of decor.

You can see them in children’s rooms and more formal spaces and they are available in a variety of price points.

You can be sure that the Moroccan leather pouf is a design trend that has some sticking power, nut not everyone is interested in paying top dollar for the designer version.
There are a lot of companies out there that sell Moroccan poufs but you might find out that they are a bit too pricey. So what are you to do when you want one badly for your room? You can always buy a Moroccan leather pouf that is not stuffed and you can stuff it yourself once it gets delivered. It is really easy and fun to do and it won’t even take long! Plus you can use a number of different materials; however, the best way is using half of bag of bean bag balls, a layer of plastic or material – to seal the balls – and finally a layer of polyester pillow foam. The process is really simple once you gave gathered all your materials.
You can buy bean bag balls at any big supermarket, for around $10-15 a bag, but keep in mind that one bag can fill two Moroccan poufs. To fill, place your Moroccan leather pouf in a bath or large trough, you can even use a small blow-up paddling pool, cut the corner of the beanbag packet and pour the contents into the pouf. Once you cannot fit any more balls in the pouf you can take a break.
The next step is to place a layer of plastic or material on top of the balls, attempting to seal the balls; some will escape, but, no worries, as the next step – polyester pillow foam – will hold them in further. You can buy polyester pillow foam for around $3 - $5 and it will be enough to fill one pouf. Cut open the pillow and use the foam to fill the remainder of the pouf. Try and use all of the foam as this will make the pouf firmer and distribute the foam to the edges of the pouf. Last but not least you must do up the zipper by pulling the leather sides together.
