Doing good in the world has never been so comfortable. This ultra-cozy hammock chair helps to support the people who make it--members of a small village of the endangered Mlabri people in northern Thailand. The Mlabri were nearly wiped out in the mid 20th century, when the teak forests that were their home were cut down for decorative wood. But they have begun a slow resurgence by turning to their traditional weaving skills as a source of sustainable income for their community.
This hanging hideaway is hand woven from two miles of soft, acrylic cord--an intensive process which takes three to four days to complete. It can be used as a lounge seat, with feet dangled out over the edge, or as a full-length, solo hammock, stretching out to seven feet. The hammock can support up to 300 pounds, and comes with its own, handy tote bag made from repurposed nylon. Handmade in Thailand.
