Inspired by the beautiful leather poufs made by the Nigerian Hausa tribe, these poufs are made from textile waste. They measure 32" in diameter and have a tie closure. The inserts are made in Queens, NY of a fluffy, allergy free fill.
Sarah Nsikak is a Nigerian-American living in Brooklyn, New York. Her love of textiles led her to working in the fashion industry for several years after completing a Masters Degree in Art Therapy. The exorbitant amount of waste generated in the fashion industry inspired a re-routing back to her art practice. These hand quilted pieces are made exclusively using recycled material sourced from fashion designers based in New York. Special textiles are also sourced through vintage stores and estate sales.
