Lay Down Anywhere With This Wearable Beanbag

A Japanese garment company recently made international news headlines for its newest creation –  a wearable beanbag that allows you to comfortably sit or lay down anytime, anywhere.

When thinking about ultimate comfort, a giant beanbag that you can wear is probably not the first thing that comes to mind, but according to Takikou, a garment company based in Japan’s Aichi Prefecture, that’s exactly what its new wearable beanbag is about. The seemingly wacky invention was reportedly inspired by the concept of a “cushion that ruins people”, a rather popular idea among Japanese designers that basically revolves around offering consumers extreme levels of comfort that they don’t ever want to move, thus ruining their lives.

“This concept was born out of the idea of a cushion that would allow you to totally let go, any time, anywhere. You can put this on and chill out in your living room, or loads of other places, that’s why we created it,” Takikou’s Shogo Takikawa said.

The wearable beanbag has been available in Japan for a few months now, but it only recently started attracting attention, after a video of a person wearing it went viral on Twitter. Since then, it has been featured on national TV in Japan, and people have been going bananas about it.

Interestingly, the wearable beanbag is apparently one of the few good things to come out of the Covid-19 lockdown, as the Japanese garment company was inspired by people’s nesting behavior to make their stay at home as comfortable as possible.

Available in three different sizes and various colors, the wearable beanbag is easy to get in and out of, making it ideal for use virtually anytime, anywhere. One thing you need to keep in mind is that the adult version weighs around 5 kilograms (11 pounds), so it’s a bit heavier than your regular garments.


Demand for wearable beanbags has skyrocketed after the extensive media coverage, so getting your hands on one could be tricky right now. They are currently priced at 7,800 yen ($60) for the small, 9,800 yen ($74) for the medium, and 15,800 yen ($119) for the large version.
