Material: reading cushion filling

How to choose your cushion filling? What's inside samoussin reading cushions?

It’s a question that kept us a little busy before production began. To make the first prototype, I simply ripped open an old “ugly” cushion to recover its contents.

The material was nothing extraordinary, but it was firm and perfectly suited to the intended use of this little homemade invention that was supposed to revolutionize my reading life.

As the idea took shape, and we launched our first collection, the question of upholstery quickly became an important issue.

What material should I choose for filling cushions? Foam, fiber, Kapok?

I didn't want the people working on these products to have to endure such discomfort.

We first tried Kapok, a natural fiber derived from the fruit of the Kapok tree. Comfortable for the wearer, but a nightmare for the seamstress. I didn’t want the people working on these products to have to endure such discomfort.

Then we turned to foams. The dream would have been memory foam so we could crush our 𝐬𝐚𝐦𝐨𝐮𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐧 reading cushions and take them with us on trips. Unfortunately, given the desired shape of our cushions, it was impossible to source the foam in the specific format.

As for the sachets of foam flakes, they didn’t match the level of quality we wanted for our products.

Our preference: Very soft polyester fiber!

We finally opted for Arthur France Coussin’s soft polyester fiber because it ticked a lot of our boxes.

First of all, we know that the cultivation of certain natural fibers is unfortunately a tragedy for the ecology because of the need for water. This fiber is derived from recycled production offcuts of European origin.

Secondly, as the brand name indicates, this fiber is made in France, and that’s an undeniable plus for us.

Finally, it’s a dust mite-proof filling, which doesn’t change much for your books but, if you want to lay your head for a little nap on the triangle of your 𝐬𝐚𝐦𝐨𝐮𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐧, that’s surely a plus for you!

Now you know what’s inside and why we chose upholstery for our cushions: it’s clean, it’s soft, it’s French and it’s anti-bacterial!
