Floor Cushions Care Guide


Is my floor cushion ethically made?

Your Moroccan floor cushion is made in partnership with artisan weavers living and working in the Atlas mountain region of Morocco. Our relationship with these makers has been established through the British Moroccan Society, a charity which helps foster commercial partnerships to promote development and cultural exchange between Morocco and the United Kingdom.

What is my floor cushion made from?

Our beautiful floor cushions are made from sections of hand-loomed, 100% wool Berber carpets woven in the Kilim and Beni Ourain styles. Each carpet features idiosyncratic motifs and patterns and takes the artisan months to complete.

Is my floor cushion eco-friendly?

Each cushion is made using 100% wool which is a natural and sustainable material. We hope your one-of-a kind Boho Sahara cushion becomes a beloved heirloom passed down through years to come; a treasured piece that defies throw-away consumerism.

What should I use to fill my floor cushion?

Your floor cushion is very adaptable and can be filled with a wide variety of materials depending on the desired weight and firmness you wish to create.

You can fill your floor cushion yourself using one of the following:

Scrap Fabric - For the environmentally conscious, scraps of fabric and wadding from unwanted clothes, cushions and curtains can be torn up into small pieces and used to fill your floor cushion. The volume, ratios and types of materials you choose can be used to determine the firmness of your floor cushion.

Polystyrene Balls - Polystyrene balls offer a quick and easy way to fill your floor cushion; they are readily available and will create a light-weight feel making your floor cushion easy to move around.

Upholstery Wadding - Upholstery wadding can be used to fill your floor cushion. Speak to a local upholstery service who can recommend filling options or fill it for you.


How do I stuff my floor cushion?

- Make sure your chosen filling is dry and clean.

- Fully unzip and open your floor cushion.

- Start by stuffing around the edges of the floor cushion and work into the centre.

- Once you have a layer of filling repeat the steps above until you have reached the desired volume.

- Over-stuffing can put pressure on the zip and stitch work. If the zip is struggling to close it might be necessary to remove a little filling.


What if my floor cushion starts to flatten?

No problem, simply unzip the back and add in a little extra stuffing, working from the edges inwards to avoid lumps.


How should I care for my floor cushion?

Vacuum your cushion cover regularly on both sides using a low suction setting to keep it free from dust and debris. You can also keep it fresh with an occasional light misting of fabric freshener.


Can I clean my floor cushion?

If liquid is spilled on your cushion cover we recommend absorbing the liquid as quickly as possible using kitchen towel or an absorbent, dye-free cloth. Do not rub spills or apply water, fabric cleaners or bleach. 

If further cleaning is required take to a trusted dry cleaner.


How do I deter moths?

Moth breeding season in the UK is May - Oct so this is the time to be extra vigilant. Moths prefer dusty, food stained natural fibres and thrive in humid environments. Make sure you keep your home well ventilated to decrease humidity. Regularly vacuum the surface of your cushion to keep the fabric clean. You may want to lightly spray the cushion with a shop-bought moth deterrent or make your own using water and a few drops of lavender essential oil. You could even place a few small sachets of dried lavender inside between the cushion and the cover.
