We started ApiHappi in 2014 with a dream to revitalize the art of handloom and empower creative artisans in Sri Lanka by combining fresh ideas with ancient traditions. Originally we started off using handloomed cotton to make stringy bags. As time went on customers, friends, and family started asking us to make beanbags.
So eventually, Aparna did some research and came up with a beanbag design that would really bring out the handloom colours while have an upright, ergonomic feel. It turns out people really loved handloom beanbags and ever since then we have been providing them to individual customers as well as cafe's, hotels, and retreats. For a fun and in-depth look at our journey please check our kickstarter video from 2019 below.
