What is Il Saccotto
Il Saccotto is a complete family of bean bags representing four different characters: Annibale the Original Elephant, Tricky the Pretty Walrus, the Hippo the Bulky Hippopotamus and Dolby the Cute Kangaroo. They are cloth bags filled with beans which take the form of a cute animal to turn into an original design object. The stories of these cute animals that decorate the house and make it more cheerful, are especially popular among children: their stories are colourful and dreamy, and it results in the softness of fabrics. Il Saccotto, with its original and funny design objects, is a peculiar company that is distinguished in the furnishing sector thanks to its ability to use of fabrics and colours in an original and unique way, creating objects to live and admire. Il saccotto has created a world of fascinating fantasy, where elephants are yellow and walruses have pretty green fangs.
Each "saccotto" is flexible, soft and adaptable and it can be used by children to roll or play but also by adults as a big soft chair or a funny footrest.
Features of the saccotto
The outer cover of the saccotto cover is hand washable at 30°, but it mustn't be ironed. Each saccotto is equipped with two counter-coatings, for the body and the head, which allow the filling and are removable. The saccotto is filled with micro-spheres of polystyrene and it is equipped with zips, which allow to completely remove the cover. The zips are hidden with pieces of cloth in order to protect floors from scratches and also to prevent the children to try to open the bean bag.
The history of the company and its objects
The well-known and peculiar company of design objects has been created by Anna and Alberto, a pair of creative architects who, after the birth of their baby Leonardo, wanted to create something specifically for him, a real playmate nice and faithful. Over time, these objects have become not only design items, but also objects that stimulate the imagination of children and accompany them as they grow up.

Il Saccotto, a company entirely made in Italy, creates objects that are half-way between an informal and nice chair and a funny stuffed animal on which any child can not only sit, but also roll or play. These objects can be dragged, hugged and easily moved. The shapes of these design objects are simple and clean to offer a piece of furniture that can be placed in any room of the house.
