Bean Bag Filling

 

Lujo bean bags are shipped unfilled to Australia, direct from our warehouse in New Zealand.

Our bean bags have been designed to be filled with polystyrene beans. You can purchase these from numerous retail stores (see the list of retailers below).

 

PURCHASING FILLED – CUSTOM ORDERS

Due to the size/volume of filled bean bags, it is far more cost effective to airfreight unfilled bean bag covers internationally, with most customer’s choosing to fill their bean bags with locally purchased polystyrene filling to save substantially on shipping costs.

We do, on occasion, have customers that prefer to pay for sea-freight of filled bean bags. This comes at an additional cost and lead time that is usually only viable for larger orders of 10+ items

If you would like us to quote on this option, please contact us with your order requirements and we will provide an indicative quote

 

ECO-FRIENDLY FILLING OPTION

If you are looking for an environmentally friendly option for bean bag filling, you may like to check out Eco-beans. Made in New Zealand, these beans are made from PLA which is produced entirely from Maize starch, making them biodegradable and certified commercially compostable loose fill.

 

FILLING VOLUMES

Filling volumes can vary by personal preference. Some like them firmer and more structured, some prefer them softer so they can sink right in.

Note: Beans will compress slightly over time, making the bean bags softer and more comfortable with use. We recommend topping them up as required to get the bean bag to a level of comfort you are happy with. This will also help maintain the shape and structure of the product.

FILLING YOUR BEAN BAG

All Lujo bean bags come with detailed filling instructions. It is a simple process, requiring two people.

In a nutshell, one person holds the bean bag open, the other person slowly pours in the beans. It’s best to do this in a confined space so that any beans that escape can be vacuumed up.

After the work is done you can sit back, sink in…and relax

 

SUGGESTED RETAILERS FOR BEANS

If you are opting to fill you bean bags yourself, why not check out these options for purchasing beans:

     

    SAFETY

    WARNING: Polystyrene Beans are dangerous if swallowed or inhaled by children.

    For the safety of young children, we use YKK® safety zips. If you have young children we recommend breaking or cutting off the tab of the liner zip (outdoor bean bags) or outer shell zip (indoor bean bags) once filed, so children cannot access the polystyrene beans.

    Should you need to open the liner in future, simply slide a paper clip through the hole in the zip slider and use it to open and close zipper.

    If you have questions about product safety please don’t hesitate to contact us.
