It all started with a straightforward request from Steve Shrimpton’s son Tim. “Can you make me a bean bag please, Dad?” Having built up a successful textiles company, Steve thought “no problem”. His first attempt was a small narrow seat. “Too small, Dad.” The second a bigger seat. “Bigger, Dad, bigger!” Finally, Steve made a huge bean bag seat. Tim loved it. His friends loved it and tested it to the max. B-bag was born.
