Hang Time

Doing good in the world has never been so comfortable. This ultra-cozy hammock-for-two helps to support the people who make it—members of a small village of endangered Mlabri people in northern Thailand. The Mlabri were nearly wiped out in the mid 20th century, when the teak forests of their home were cut down for decorative wood. But they have begun a resurgence by turning to their traditional weaving skills as a source of sustainable income for their community.

This hanging hideaway is hand-woven from three miles of soft, hand-dyed cotton cord—an intensive process which takes six to seven days to complete. A spacious retreat for one, the hammock is woven extra wide so it can also accommodate two loungers side by side. It's designed to support a combined weight up to 400 pounds, and comes in a handy tote bag made from weather-safe canvas. Handmade in Thailand.

Make hanging your hammock a breeze with our easy to use Hammock Tree Straps.

Yellow Leaf Hammocks is working to spread social change through their lighthearted philosophy: Do Good. Relax.

They started distributing durable, 100% hand-woven hammocks as a way to provide sustainable economic opportunities for the people who make them. It started with the Mlabri Tribe in Thailand. A marginalized group with no concept of land ownership or relationship with the outside world, the Mlabri people were on the brink of extinction. Deforestation left them impoverished and enslaved by opportunists. By weaving the hammocks, the tribe has been able to develop a sustainable micro-economy. Yellow Leaf is “dedicated to nourishing [these] communities by promoting long-term economic health, environmental stewardship, social equity, and cultural vitality.”

In 2011, Yellow Leaf became a B Corp “to stand united with other values-driven enterprises and share in the collaboration, debate, and vision that will help bring market-driven solutions to the world's social ills.” They’re committed to spurring positive economic, environmental, and cultural change—as they say, “all from the comfort of a hammock.”

Amazing

I love this hammock! The company behind it is really amazing and I love how it's signed by the woman who made it! This was my second hammock (replaced my old one from Mexico) and this is a much higher quality hammock than what I previously had. The yarn is super soft and stretchy, so it fits me plus my pup who loves to get in too. Great place to relax after work.
