It's time to put our phones away and reconnect in a more mindful way!
Bagby is a revolutionary idea that solves a technology problem by encouraging a simple behavior change. Less Technology is MORE.
Bagby is a sleeping bag for your phone with a built-in slit so you can charge your phone while it’s tucked away. It includes a removable hook and a classic –non-digital alarm-clock.

In January, my husband Juan Sánchez and I decided to take our relationship to the next level. We realized that, like many other couples around the world, we were very distracted so it was difficult for us to connect with each other. My husband suggested a Phone-Free Bedroom Challenge. No phones, no distractions. Soon after, we discovered the benefits this simple change in behavior could bring to people, especially couples like us, so we decided to create Bagby. Truth be told, we haven’t brought our phones back in the bedroom since.
Bagby helped us to reconnect and... I'm 6 months pregnant!
All our pledges include a printable phone-free bedroom challenge tracker so you can track your journey. Share it with your friends on social media! #PhoneFreeBedroomChallenge (It will be sent to you by email).

Bagby is made with quality materials:
- EXTERIOR: Although the first samples were made in "arpillera" (burlap), we decided to use "símil arpillera", a similar material to burlap that is more solid and durable.
- INTERIOR: The inside is made of premium cotton with a very soft texture.
We offer Bagby in 3 different colors named after our favorite baby names. We want to have many, so if we make this dream come true, we will be creating many more choices!
Don't worry, you don't need to pick your color now. Once the project is funded, we will send you a survey to fill out the details such as: Your address, the color / model you like, etc

We know the bedroom isn't the only place that should be a phone-free zone. We have created a Bagby for communal spaces. We call it "Bagby - Living & Chilling", It's a bigger version with 4+ pockets to keep your smartphones away while enjoying a nice dinner at home or a party with friends. It's included in the Family Pack but you can also order it alone.
Although Bagby has been designed especially for couples,...
... there are many other groups that can benefit from Bagby, too: singles, parents, friends, families, business people, etc. We all deserve to be less distracted and sleep better.
1- THE SINGLE
2- THE PARENTS
3- THE SWEETHEART WHO LOVES HIS / HER FRIENDS
4- THE UNITED FAMILY
5- THE BOSS WHO LOVES HIS/HER TEAM
Bagby has been designed to create phone-free bedrooms, however, it doesn't mean you can't use it for other purposes like in your living room while watching Netflix, inviting friends over for catch-ups, even in the bathroom or for your car. Bagby is a versatile solution. Feel free to make the best out of it.
We believe Bagby is great for you but we also think it's a great gift for people you care about. Here are some ideas:
1) You know a couple who is engaged and you want to bring their relationship to a more mindful level -> Bagby!
2) You have been invited to a wedding and you don't know what to give them as a present -> Bagby!
3) You are hosting a party at your place and you want people to have fun and socialize with each other -> Bagby!
4) You want to surprise a member of your family who is always on his / her phone -> Bagby!
5) You are driving and need to put your phone away to avoid distractions -> Bagby!
6) You are someone who likes to give unique and meaningful gifts for Christmas and you haven't bought them yet -> Bagby!
We tried to make this as simple as possible but we wanted to give you choices because we thought some of you might already have an alarm clock.
BASIC Packs = NO alarm clocks.
FULL Packs = Include alarm clocks.
Packs come with 1, 2 or 5 Bagbys and the 5x packs include a little gift for you!
ALL PACKS COME WITH:
- Door Hangers so you can call out your friends who are addicted to their phones.
- The Phone-Free Bedroom Challenge tracker (digital version).

We believe brands and projects should have a long term vision, a goal that goes beyond the product, gives back to the community and contributes to the greater good.

Risks and challenges
We are a couple with several years of experience working for large companies and setting up new businesses and projects. While we have been relentlessly concerned with the details throughout prototyping, finding the best materials and planning for production, there is always the chance that omnipresent Murphy guy may make an entrance with that law of his.
In the event that things don't go as planned, whether it's a delay in the manufacturing timeline, shipping date, or something else, we promise to communicate honestly with you and work around the clock until we correct the issue.
We are not responsible for any damages to mobile phones, such as dropped or cracked phones that may happen while putting your phone in Bagby. We ensure Bagby holds up to 2kg. It's designed to be durable and solid, but we cannot control how people put their phones inside a Bagby. Also, although we have tested many surfaces, our hook might leave some marks if your door or wall paint is too old or of low quality.
