About us:

The Giant Bean Bag is a proudly South African, small business, owned and operated by myself, Paige Pledger. The Giant Bean Bag started in May 2020 from home, as a creative side venture, however, to my complete amazement, this very quickly changed and turned into a full-blown business!I had always dreamt of starting a creative business venture of my own and I am so proud of how far my business has come in such a short period of time.

I could have never imagined that this business would have taken off as quickly as it did, I am loving the creative outlet that The Giant Bean Bag has offered me. Watching it grow and seeing how people have responded so positively to my products has been incredibly rewarding!

I often say “we” when referring to my business and that is because I have an amazing small team that helps me make up all orders; my amazing manufacturer who also owns his own small, family-run upholstery business; and secondly, my incredible casuals from the Limpopo Province. They have full-time jobs but work with me after hours, as well as on weekends to earn an extra income to provide for their families. They do all the bean bag filling (a huge job) and assist with packaging. For many months I did this all on my own.

Due to the ongoing valued customer support that we have received to date, The Giant Bean Bag has been able to grow and start providing employment opportunities, as well as support another small businesses. Being able to rely on this small team has significantly changed the dynamic and efficiency of the company, allowing me to focus more on marketing, sourcing fabrics, quoting, and ensuring that customers receive their beautiful bean bags in a timely
manner.

The Giant Bean Bag would never be possible without this great team, and of course, our wonderful customers that have supported us so far! I so look forward to growing my team and business in the years to come.

Yours in comfort,

Paige Pledger
Owner – The Giant Bean Bag
