Frequently asked questions
Moteef cushions have been designed with outdoor living in mind. Check out our frequently asked questions for more information.
Is your shopping cart secure?
Our shopping cart is powered by Stripe which has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available.
I can't decide what cushions designs I like, can you help?
Of course! Email us a photo of your space and we'll suggest some options for you. We do this all the time!
What features make your cushion covers outdoor worthy?
Moteef cushion covers have been designed with outdoor living in mind - vibrant colour is digitally printed onto thick, 100% polyester fabric which is mildew, stain and water resistant and sewn with nylon thread for strength and durability.
What inserts do you include?
All Moteef outdoor cushions include an optional environmentally friendly, non allergenic insert. Sourced from Australia's leading manufacture of sustainable fibre based products, the insert filler is derived from 100% post consumer water bottles. This PET fibre looks, feels and performs in the same way as a high-grade poly fibre, but is completely recycled. Even better is that every 50cm cushion insert saves around 25 plastic water bottles from landfill.
Will the cushion fabric fade?
All printed fabrics will fade overtime when exposed to extended periods of UV light. Results for specific testing of colour fastness can range from 1 (poor colour fastness to light) to 8 (excellent colour fastness to light). Generally, results 5 and over are considered acceptable in the furnishings industry. Independent laboratory tests report results, for the Moteef collection, within the 5-6 range for up to 500 hours of direct sunlight.
Can I use your cushions indoors?
Absolutely! The fabric is wonderfully soft and the inserts are plump and comfy so use them wherever you want with no fear of colour transfer.
What's the best way to care for Moteef cushions?
Moteef cushions are best used and displayed year round within covered outdoor living spaces where they are protected from the elements. Do not neglect in full sun. Rotate, dust and plump them regularly to keep them in tip top shape and follow the simple laundering instructions sewn into the seam. Ensure your covers and inserts are completely dry before long term storage.
Do you make your outdoor candles?
Moteef's luxe outdoor candle range is a collaboration between Moteef x Self Organics. E-von has a nose for blending essential oils and worked with us to realise our specific vision. We sourced our custom made vessel and the result is a uniquely packaged, hand poured, outdoor candle range that we adore.
Good to know: Our outdoor candle packaging can be reused. Simply clean out the last bits of wax, put the glass into the top level of your dishwasher and voila - you can now use it as a coffee glass, a holder for a terrarium or as a storage vessel - the lid is very snug fitting.
Perth customers: Contact Theresa from The Botanical Home if you'd like to turn your empty candle vessel into a gorgeous terrarium like this for just $15.
How do I care for my scarf?
Hand wash your scarf in cold water with mild soap and line dry in the shade. Avoid wearing it with jewellery that may catch a thread as it may pull or create a hole. The scarves are hand frayed so if a thread on the edge comes loose, simply pull it free - it will only add to the frayed edge and will not effect the garment.
