Our history begins back in 2009 when during the great recession, our founder Jonathan was looking for some new affordable bean bag furniture. Struggling to find an affordable sofa style bean bag and with a penchant for fabrics & interior design, he decided take on an evening project. With this the seed was planted. Using an old Singer sewing machine, the first sample beanbag was created. A giant bean bag sofa made for 3. This bean bag design was an instant hit with friends, family & colleagues. After putting together seed funding, further designs were created and tested and in less than a year, our Big Bertha Original beanbag brand was born.
