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.

The Magic of Colour

19 Nov

Twice a year for nearly twenty years, Pantone, the global authority on colour, presents a range of colours that influence designers and artists all over the world. These are the most prominent hues for fall 2012 and you have probably been seeing a lot of these colours in the stores at the moment. I really look forward to seeing the new predictions from Pantone and are influenced by their beautiful colour predictions, with the accessories and home wares I create for my own store.

With an unexpected mix of darks, brights and neutrals, they cleverly manipulate reality to transport consumers to an enchanting place, free from the stresses of everyday life. “By playing to consumers’ practical side with versatile neutrals, and boosting their confidence with bold, spirited hues, this skillfully balanced palette has something for everyone,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

As the season transitions from the heat of summer, Bright Chartreuse, a vital yellow-green, pays homage to a typical spring shade and creates a bridge into the cooling days of fall. Reminiscent of bright green foliage, it provides a perfect accent to every color in the palette. Like the name implies, Pink Flambé is a delicious, vibrant pink with a bit of heat to it. Pair it with vivacious and enticing Tangerine Tango for an ongoing retro feeling.

Or, to bring a calming element to the mix, combine these vibrant warm tones with Ultramarine Green, a deep, cooling blue-green. Ethereal Rhapsody is a grayed-down purple that also encourages comfort and serenity with its quiet, muted tone. Honey Gold, a mellow, burnished yellow, suggests the soft-muted tones of sunlight to brighten a fall day.

Pair it with sensible and strong Olympian Blue, a patriotic blue that will surely make its way into fall and winter athletic apparel. Rich and robust, French Roast is a tasty, sophisticated hue that is a great alternative to the black and charcoal basics typically worn in the fall. Other staple neutrals include elegant and versatile Titanium, the quintessential cool gray, and Rose Smoke, a veiled rose tone that pairs well with Rhapsody and Titanium.
