The polka-dots on these colorful poufs are no random design -- they hold a deeper significance, as they are inspired by the traditional Indian Bindis that are worn on foreheads. Designed and made in India by Studio Avni Bindi, the Bindi Dot Pouf and the Bindi Dot Flat Pouf are two designs that vibrantly represent Indian culture. Moreover, the Bindi-printed seatings are made of discarded silk Sarees, an Indian garment. The overall eco-friendly and culture-embracing theme of these poufs are what makes them stand out on the market.

These designs were featured at the 2013 Milan Design Week, applauded for their upcycled and sustainable work. The collection experiments with the rich Indian drape, silk Sarees, to create structural seatings. The polka-dots on these poufs are pleated with coiled silk textures, making each polka-dot seem as if it is blooming.
