With our great Fombags, it was only natural for us to create a Fompillow bean bag pillow, too. But these comfortable additions are actually part of a long line of floor pillows. Many different cultures have used something like a bean bag pillow to create an atmosphere of comfort and style. Bean bag pillows are a comfortable alternative to furniture like couches and chairs. This type of pillow was actually used traditionally in some Japanese, Moroccan, Korean, and Indian designs. We’re proud to include our bean bag pillows in this great history of floor pillows. After all, it’s been working for centuries—and if it's not broke, why fix it?
In Japan, their version of the bean bag pillow is called a zabuton or zafu. They’re actually used quite a bit in Japanese culture. Their rendition of the bean bag pillow is used for seating during things like eating, meditating, or watching television. In this culture, the floor pillows are generally square, and they’re made out of cotton. We like to think that we’ve improved on this tradition with the Fompillow. Our bean bag pillows are filled with a comfortable foam that we believe is far superior to any other material out there.
In Moroccan cultures, they use their version of the bean bag pillow in a slightly different way. Their pillows are actually more like short cylinders that are are called poufs. But they’re used in a variety of social gatherings. That’s exactly what you can do with your bean bag pillow. They’re great for movie night with friends, and your kids will love using them at sleepovers. Take a cue from the Moroccans—bean bag pillows are excellent for entertaining guests.
