Good & Relaxed

When Joe Demin first experienced one of these hammocks in Thailand, it was "love at first swing." 100% hand-woven from 3.2 miles of soft, vibrant, colorfast and weather-resistant cord, a process that can take a week to complete but that offers a contoured comfort unmatched by traditional cloth hammocks. This queen-sized model is perfect for two people to curl up and enjoy relaxing together.

Demin tracked down the source of these woven wonders--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, after their population dropped as low as 300, they have begun a slow resurgence. They have turned their traditional weaving skills toward making these inviting hammocks as a way of bringing sustainable income into their community. So as you snooze away a warm afternoon in your bright, woven nest, you can know that its makers are resting more easily as well.

Because of its woven nature, the Love at First Swing Hammock should not be used while wearing clothing with exposed buttons or zippers, or jewelry with snaggable edges. But when proper attire is worn, the hammock will last you through many summers to come. Handmade in Thailand.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

      Was happy to see this sold on UG! Yellow Leaf hammocks are amazingly soft and supportive. I love mine; and my family (even neighbors) love it very much! Plus nothing beats taking a nap knowing your purchase helped someone in need!
