While researching all kinds of bean bag chairs we noticed that most of them are made out of various polyester blends that made them less comfortable than they could potentially be.

Selling through Discovered creates more income for artisans. They can set the price they want to receive for the products themselves. By cutting out all middlemen, artisans receive at least 20% more for their products. This is what we call fairer trade.
Discovered is dedicated to creating positive impact. Not all artisans work alone. Sometimes they work in groups or collectives, are helped by not for profit organizations or work for social businesses. We select our partners to ensure more artisans have work make at least 10% above average wage.
We are committed to crafts. We encourage artisans to make products using traditional crafts and techniques. Making products mainly by hand or with easy accessible tools or common available machines. We believe this is important to keep alive.
We love handmade. We also feel strongly about preserving the world we live in. That’s why we work with our partners & artisans to stimulate using local materials and natural resources, and paying special attention to packaging & shipping.
Product story
Shipping & returns
This is our super comfy handloom cotton bean bag chair. While researching all kinds of bean bag chairs we noticed that most of them are made out of various polyester blends that made them less comfortable than they could potentially be. So we decided to go ahead and make one out of handloomed cotton. When designing the shape of the bean bag we were aiming at creating both a piece of art as well something functionally sound that is easy to sit on. The ApiHappi bean bag chair is about 1 meter long and about one meter wide. We have around 30 colors that you can choose from for your bean bag! 1. Waterproof inner case. This allows you to take the handloom case off and toss it in the washing machine whenever you want. 2. This handloom bean bag does NOT include stuffing. We will be sending just the handloom case and the inner case. Bean Bag stuffing is usually available at any hardware store in the US, UK, Canada and Australia. We will provide a 'How To Stuff Your Bean Bag guide'. 3. All orders go towards our mission of revitalizing handloomed cotton, empowering local artisans and providing backpacks for children in rural Sri Lanka with our one for one school bag program.
