This Pompom Pouf by Studio Avni is a burst of color and inspiration for environmentally conscious homes. The small, bright-colored pompoms are made of recycled Sarees, the vividly draped traditional Indian garments worn by women in India.

The individual pompom shells are made of 100% upcycled linen and silk from Sarees, with 100% cotton filling inside. Wooden legs are made of locally found Indian wood. The intricately sewn pouf would make a great decorative seating or foot stool. The bubble-like 3D texture of the pouf livens up any room atmosphere.

This upcycled furniture line was showcased at the 2013 Milan Design Week, in recognition for its eco-friendly aspect of converting old and discarded clothes into something new and exciting. The Pompom pouf would be a nice finishing touch for the environmentally conscious furniture lovers.
