Product Information

Vintage & Handmade Products

Souk & Co. hand select all products and ship directly from Morocco. Some are sourced new, some are made to order and some are vintage quality. It is the nature of these beautifully unique products that there may be some inconsistencies. Slightly asymmetrical products, varying coloured dyes and slight fading, for example, are all part of the charm and individuality of the product. However we are careful not choose items that have obvious faults or poor craftsmanship.

Those identified as vintage in the product description have a rustic quality and have been chosen as we loved their character and unique qualities.

 

Care & Maintenance

Moroccan rugs and blankets are made with predominantly natural products and dyes. As with many natural rugs, the dyes may be prone to bleeding so we recommend that you have the rug treated if it is to be used in an area where it can be subjected to spills. A good quality treatment will not affect the look of the product. Another option is to hang your rug or blanket on the wall, a well hung rug looks fabulous!

Rugs, wedding blankets and cushions should be professionally cleaned as required.

Pouffes are made from natural leather and should be cared for as with any other leather product, a little attention will go a long way and you will be able to enjoy your pouffe for many years. Wipe regularly with a soft cloth or vacuum with a soft brush attachment to keep dust free, ensure you do not use anything that can scratch the leather. Keep out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources. A good leather conditioner a couple of times a year will help to keep in good condition, ensure you test this or any leather cleaner in an inconspicuous place first.

If you use your pouffe as a table with a tray, put a towel or the like under the tray so heat is not transferred to damage the leather.

When filling your pouffe think about its purpose, if you want it to be solid and stable fill it with old fabrics or newspapers.  If you want to be able to move it around easily fill it with bean bag beans or even plastic shopping bags (although you will need quite a few).  When about 90% filled, give it a roll around to settle the filling in and then fill the rest, you may find that it will settle and you will need to come back later and fill some more.
