1- Fill your Moroccan pouf using IKEA FJADRAR feather pillows.

Our favorite IKEA pillows of all time are FJADRAR inserts filled with duck feathers. They are super cozy and plump and the price/quality ratio is spot on. There are two sizes and the bigger 26″ inserts work best to fill our Moroccan pouf.

You’ll need three 26″ FJADRAR* IKEA feather pillows to make your pouf heavy enough to sit on. Three inserts will make your pouf round and well filled. It’s a bit pricier than using polyester stuffing, but it makes the pouf more comfortable and it’s a no-brainer since pretty much everyone has an IKEA store nearby.


If you do not have time to go to Ikea, you can place your orders directly online on the Ikea website.

*Important: Make sure you pick up the inserts filled with feathers and not the cheaper ones that are filled with polyester. The polyester ones won’t work for this purpose.

2- Fill your Moroccan pouf with polyester stuffing (or pillow filling).

This is probably the easiest way to fill your pouf. we recommend using two 40 ounce bags (or 3 lbs.) of polyester stuffing*. (Just like this one) You can probably find some at your local fabric store.

3- Fill your Moroccan pouf with unused clothing and textiles you can find around your home.

This is our favorite method even if it requires you to do a little decluttering in your closets and find all those perfect textiles to make your pouf heavy and plump.

Look around the house for unused textiles such as:

  • Old jeans you’re no longer wearing

  • Sweaters

  • Old kids clothing

  • Pillows you’re no longer using

  • Bath towels you’re no longer using

  •  Get bonus points if you have an old duvet you don’t know what to do with!
