Five great questions :: Moroccan Ottoman Poufs

20 Feb

Why are your poufs shipped flat?

Rock Ribbons Moroccan Ottoman Poufs are shipped flat and posted in padded envelopes with free shipping.

Where are they made?

Our Moroccan Ottoman Poufs are handmade in Morocco using thirty five pieces of leather, sabre silk and skills passed down from generation to generation.

What do I fill them with?

There are so many things that you can fill your Rock Ribbons Moroccan Ottoman Pouf with, the traditional filling (which is quite heavy) is coconut coir which is very cheap and can be bought from most garden centres. Personally I found this filling a little too substantial and like to fill my own poufs and recommend to customers, a filling which is a combination of cushion inners or pillows in first (for some softness under your feet). Then either old duvet inners, wool blankets, towels or a mixture of all three.

Will my Moroccan ottoman pouf look like the colours in store?

In store I have one of the most extensive colour selections around with twenty two leather shades and three faux leather metallic options. I’ve spent quite a bit of time colour matching each of the poufs to the images online, to get the most accurate colour representation. As each pouf is handmade and unique the colour can vary slightly with each dye run that my supplier in Morocco produces. I recommend to my customers if you are thinking of getting two poufs in the same colour, then to buy both together.

Do you offer a wholesale price, drop shipping or a designer/blogger price?

If you have a brick and mortar or an online store, I offer wholesale prices on the Moroccan Ottoman Pouf with a small minimum order of ten. I’m also happy to drop ship and can supply text and images for you to use on your site. Also available is a special price for for lifestyle bloggers and designers. Please feel free to email me for more details regarding any of these options.
