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.

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.
