Bear in mind the 1970's when bean bags were so popular? In the 1970's bean bag chairs were loaded up with real beans which made the bean bags hard as a rock and also heavy to relocate about. The real beans also began to get rotten with time as well as would certainly attract insects. Kept in mind Italian developers established the very first bean bag chairs in the 1960's. While improvements to its size and form have occurred over time, in basic the bean bag chair type stays real to the design of the Sacco from the 1960's.
