There’s a few options available for stuffing your Nouvelle Nomad cushion, pouf or ottoman. We always prefer the environmentally conscious materials, and of course the most cost friendly options!
This is the method mostly used by Moroccan families, and our preferred way too. It creates a super comfortable, heavy and structured feel to your cushion. Help reduce landfill by re-using or recycling your old clothing, linen bed sheets, towels and other pre-loved fabric, which is the cheapest and most environmentally friendly way!
PILLOWS AND CUSHION INSERTS
If you have these already you can absolutely re-use old pillows or new cushion inserts to stuff your cushion. While the exact size of your Nouvelle Nomad cushion will most likely not be available in a standard size from the shop - this is actually no problem. Go for a pillow size a couple of sizes bigger than your cushion, or use multiple inserts to get a really full, even feel.
This option is more expensive - but gives a nice even fill and weight. Look online for DIY upholstery suppliers and craft shops that stock coconut fibre or flock.
BEAN BAG BALLS
While a completely viable option, it’s not a method we use ourselves - manufactured polystyrene (EPS) bean bag balls aren't environmentally friendly for our oceans and beaches, or the wildlife and marine animals that can swallow them. Plus we don’t really like that crunchy sound in our cushions ;)
