Years ago, the fillers of beanbags are made of real dried beans. However, insects are attracted to it and creep in it making the chair unsuitable to be occupied. Later on, beans are changed into PVC pellets, expanded polypropylene, and polystyrene. These fillers made the furniture lightweight which makes it easier to move around. This is an advantage when you want to rearrange the furniture in your room, you can just drag it to any space without exerting too much effort.
These beanbag chairs come in a large selection of fabrics including corduroy, cotton drill, denim, nylon, fur, vinyl, suede and Fil-tec fabric for outdoor beanbags. Bean bag chairs made in cotton drill, denim or nylon are machine washable, however you should really think about removable liners. Emptying the beanbags is not an easy task and is very time consuming. Beanbag chairs, because they are a filled and upholstered furniture, come under a special category for safety standards. It is important that you know the contents of the child‘s beanbag chair and whether it meets the US flammability standards especially if you have children who use the bean bag chairs, Polystyrene beads and polyurethane foam are among the most popular bean bag chair fillers.
It‘s not until 1969 that the beanbag as we understand it emerged into existence. Italian stylistes Gatti, Paolini, and Teodora were doing work for the Zanotta Company and were striving to develop the ideal type of easy chair to market to 1960‘s hipsters and hippies. The easy chair would have to be trendy, useful, and in-tune with the 60‘s life-style. With the brief understood they began designing this seat and what they ultimately delivered has been referred to as Sacco or the Socco as it became known overseas. It was the Sacco which was the first contemporary bean bag - a pear shaped leather-based bag filled with thermocole pellets that have been latterly substituted for shredded polyurethane foam beads or expanded polystyrene or PVC pellets.
Secondly get your first bag of beans and snip a small opening in the corner of the bag. This way you have a small opening in the corner which you can control as those beans like to escape quickly. Then you can tip the beans into the bigger bag. To make the beans go in more quickly you can close the zip of the inner bag so that it is closer around the beans (an less fall out) and then make the opening in the bag of beans bigger so they can flow out more quickly. While you are putting the first bag or two in you can do it very quickly as there is lots of room in the bag and your friend can hold it up so no beans spill. You will find as the bag fills up you have to be more careful as the beans can go everywhere, keep the opening small so you can control the flow. Once all in zip it up, pop on the cover and voila!
