What’s better than lazing in a hammock? Not a hell of a whole lot. Whether you’re at the park, beach or just in your backyard – we all know hammocks are where dreams come true. So when we heard about Yellow Leaf – a social enterprise that produces hammocks handwoven by artisans in rural Thailand – we were excited to say the least.
The team behind Yellow Leaf are dedicated to creating sustainable jobs in rural hill-tribe communities, so they partnered with the Mlabri people and employed them to weave supersoft yarn hammocks from their homes in Thailand. Not only are the hammocks designed to be portable and taken any/everywhere, they also boast anti-flip qualities – neatly eliminating our one and only hammock-induced fear. Now, we can rest easy.
