Coconut fiber, or ‘coir', is obtained from the fibrous husk of the coconut (Cocos nucifera), the seed of the coconut palm. Its high lignin content and low cellulose content make it is resilient, strong and highly durable. The remarkable lightness of the fibers is due to the cavities arising from the dried out sieve cells. Coconut fiber is the only fruit fiber usable in the textile industry, and has been used in Asia and Africa for hundreds of years.

For stuffing, we recommend cotton batting which you can be purchased at any fabric or upholstery store. Fill the pouf until desired firmness is achieved, but be careful not to overstuff. Some designers use coir, which is coconut fiber, and pad the top with cotton batting. It's more firm and less lumpy, but still soft and comfy. Poufs can also be stuffed with shredded foam, old clothes, towels, old jeans, blankets, etc.

Most are composed of harsh and potentially harmful chemicals, with warning labels worthy of any horror story. The good news? Just as nature provides us with an overabundance of insects, it also provides us with all-natural, plant-based remedies to drive them back from whence they came. Whether …
