Sitting Pretty

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.

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.”

I love my hanging/hammock chair which my handyman hung from a tree branch in my backyard. It's very comfortable although at age 76, it's a bit of a struggle to get out of it. It will be great for our hot summer days as it's in the shade and the loose weave allows the air to circulate. It dries very quickly after rain. I'm not sure how to take care of it through our bitter cold MN winters as taking it down for storage will be quite difficult. Still pondering that.

Soooooo comfy! Bring on the power nap!

Yes!! So comfy. Easy to hang. I used two large eye hooks and chain to hang it from the ceiling in my apartment. It's small enough to fit in a room unobtrusively but I can lay down in it and stretch out completely as well :-)
