What made you want to start a hammock company?

About three years ago I left everything behind, quit my office job, sold off all my stuff, and headed to Thailand in search of a new journey.

After a year of exploration, I stumbled upon an amazing story about a hill tribe village in Northern Thailand that built a micro economy for themselves weaving hammocks. I was completely inspired with the story and quickly went to visit the operator of the project.

I quickly fell in love with what was happening in the village, and was told the demand and need for more work was impending – so I wanted to help!

Fast forward a year and half, the operator and I developed a parachute style hammock that was different, and began expanding high wage jobs for village seamstresses throughout the region. My inspiration was to not only to build a hammock that was different and designed for people to use it more, but also to transform communities through sustainable business practices.

We have sold nearly 600 hammocks to date in Thailand alone!
