Our Dumbara beanbags are made incorporating a panel of fabric that is handwoven by a small group of artisans originated in the rural hill-country area of Dumbara. Each piece is painstakingly prepared and woven over the course of two to three weeks. This specific skill has been passed down for many generations dating back to Sri Lanka's Kandyan Era (1469-1815) where it was a fabric generally made for Royalty. Currently we work with one artisan who puts his own colorful twist on the traditional craft.
Each Dumbara Beanbag is truly one of a kind because the pattern and color combinations of each panel are never repeated.
Beyond its comfy appeal, our handloomed cotton beanbags provide a rare element of design, texture, and color that can really improve the overall look and feel of your interior.

The versatile ergonomic shape of the ApiHappi beanbag is comfy enough for an adult to take a nap but also upright and sturdy enough for someone to sit up and eat soup! It's perfect for anyone between a baby and a large adult to sit comfortably but also compact enough to fit in studio apartments and cafes.

Each bean bag weighs approximately 1.5 kg unfilled (depending on the individual fabrics used) and 4.5 kg filled. Dimensions are roughly 1m x 1m x 1m. Waterproof inner covers ensure the filling is always dry and the removable outer covers can be easily washed.

What makes this product special?

1. Super Comfy and Extra Strong -
Our Handloomed cotton fabric from Sri Lanka, gives the soft comfort of 100% cotton while being very durable. For extra strength we have lined each beanbag with a layer of cotton so that our product can bare the wrath of cats, dogs, and humans!
2. Optimal Shape and Size
Our versatile ergonomic shape is perfect for anyone between a baby and a large adult to sit comfortably but also compact enough to fit in studio apartments and cafes. (The dimensions of our stuffed bean bag is 1 meter [3.25 ft] tall at the point and 1 meter [3.25 ft] wide at the base)

3. Hassle-free Maintenance
Our bean bags, when filled with regular polystyrene beads, are light enough for you to move them to your preferred comfy spot any time!
Each beanbag comes with the handloom cotton outer cover with a large zip and a waterproof inner cover - with a small zip - to hold the stuffing. This makes it so easy to remove the handloom cover and pop it in the washing machine whenever necessary.

4. A Vast Array of Color Combinations
Our handloom cotton comes in hundreds of colors and design varieties, which allows us to provide beanbags to suit all tastes and personalities.

5. Made with Love and Care.
At ApiHappi we are against sweatshops! All our beanbags are made using a system of community sourced production, where we train women to work from home. This way they can earn an income while having control over their time and space.
