Double Awards Night for The Bazaar Group
The makers of the UK's best-selling branded bean bag, the Bazaar Bag, are the only winners of two awards at last week's North East Business Awards, proving that their painstaking approach to design and manufacturing does pay off.
Mark Dolder, the Group's MD, said of the wins; "Receiving the top business awards in the region, especially after such a rigorous judging process, is a great testament to the skill and enthusiasm of our ever-expanding team".
The Bazaar Group has risen over the past 5 years to become the UK's leading designer and supplier of bean bags. Much of their success has been built upon their ability to develop innovative shapes that are put together with exacting care and attention-to-
It all started with the design team, who designed the Bazaar Bag to be a whopping 180cmx140cm. This size offers the most versatility without becoming cumbersome and problematic in the average family home. Its length caters for most adults to stretch out full length on it as a floor cushion, whilst its width allows two, or even three, people to share it side by side horizontally. It can be used upright against a wall as a chair or stool and lounged on as a classic bean bag as well. You can see an example of the Bazaar Bag at http://www.beanbagbazaar.co.uk/
The superior construction is the next major factor in the Bazaar Bag’s success and one of the reasons why customers keep coming back to it. Every stitch in every one of the bean bags is double-stitched and every seam is overlock stitched. This makes them less prone to splitting, more durable against the rigours of every day life, increases the longevity of the bag and makes for a better investment for the customer. For bean bags that are suitable for outdoor use, the Bazaar Bag included, this also makes them more practical for use on hard surfaces, such as decking, concrete or even at the beach.
Construction would be nothing without a careful choice of fabric. The 100% polyester that has been used for the Bazaar Bag is selected for its close weave, water resistant properties and the ease with which it can be wiped clean in the event of a spill. Needless to say that it also complies with UK fire safety regulations and is fire retardant. To maximize choice, the team at Bean Bag Bazaar has also ensured that the Bazaar Bag is available in a mind-boggling array of colours that leaves customers spoilt for choice. Will they go for one of the eye-catching colours of the rainbow? Or perhaps a classy black or grey will be more to their liking?
Thanks to advancements in materials and manufacturing, bean bag filling has come a long way since the early versions of the bean bag from the 70s and 80s. Filling now is much more comfortable and the fire retardant, finest virgin grade polystyrene beads that bean Bag Bazaar choose to fill their bean bags with contours to body shape providing ultimate comfort and support. A large bag like the Bazaar Bag will have a capacity of approximately 11-12 cubic feet, which can be adjusted with bean refills to make it sturdier if the customer prefers. All refills come in a stretch net bag to make them easier to insert and all bean bags have an inner bag and double zips to cut down on the risk of beans spilling out.
As the Bazaar Bag soared in popularity, so did the smaller, child version of the bag, the Baz Bag. The miniature version of the adult bag shares all the same amazing properties, but just in scaled-down form, making them perfect for children up to age 12.
Today, the Group has extended its designs well beyond a single product and now offers a multitude of shapes and sizes, including curriculum-based products for educational use.
