Moroccan Vintage Kilim Poufs
Kilim & Colors
These beautiful Poufs or Floor cushions are made from vintage Moroccan Kilim rugs by talented artisans in Marrakesh, Morocco. Kilim rugs are know for the geometrically patterned, hand woven details. The history of Moroccan Kilim rugs dates as far back as the Paleolithic Era. Traditionally, they were woven by the Berber tribes for their utility, reflecting Morocco's distinctive climate. Vegetable dyes are used to give the Berber Wool it’s rich color. Hand woven and knotted by the women of the tribe, each rug can take up to a year to complete.
Vintage Style, Season-to-Season
These Poufs are used in Morocco for floor cushions and are traditionally stuffed with off-season clothes such as kaftans – in the winter the summer kaftans are stored in the Pouf and in the summer the winter kaftans are stored in the Pouf. If you are short on kaftans that need seasonal storage, may we recommend stuffing with old towels or blankets, you can also stuff with inexpensive pillows.
*Each pouf comes unstuffed, so you can choose to use the pouf for storage or use traditional batting.
Cleaning & Care
A kilim rug must be cleaned by hand with a brush and gentle cleaning solution, we recommend a mixture of vinegar and water.
Stains must be treated quickly, though stubborn marks should only be treated for professional cleaners. For spot cleaning: Remove any debris or liquid as soon as possible. Blot stain with paper towel or white rag. Continue blotting with water and vinegar solution. For stubborn stains, pour baking soda on stain and let sit for 10 mins, vacuum up baking soda and blot with vinegar and water solution until stain is removed.
