Moroccan Leather Pouf Ottoman

An essential piece in bohemian style home decoration is the Moroccan Leather Pouf Ottoman, made from genuine leather and hand-stitched with beautiful skill and detail.

First appearance of the pouf seems to date back to the 19th century and seems to owe its name to the pompous hairstyles dictated by the French fashions of that time. A relaxation accessory that, however, has much older and earlier origins than the aforementioned period. We think of the Ottoman Empire and the Arab world. 

A part of the culture in Turkey during the time of the great Ottoman Empire, pouf ottomans as a type of furniture was brought back to Europe through trade in the late 1700’s, during which time the word Ottoman and its French Equivalent Ottoman was popularized. A rather odd word for an item of furniture, ottomans have been named most obviously after the empire itself and the name has stuck even though a lot of synonyms have been derived along the way — poufs, haddocks, footstools etc.

In the Arab world, well before the date reported it was widely used to decorate and furnish homes. They were generally made of leather and provided inside them with fabrics that made up the part of the padding. Real giant cushions to relax mind and body whenever needed.

First poufs were born as royal seats or in some cases as footrests with squared lines and a comfort that is certainly not the best. Over the years this complement has undergone various aesthetic and functional transformations.
