You know who love hammock in his/her backyard? Homer Simpson. It is a cool thing to have at anyone’s backyard, but the thing is, not everyone has a backyard, or fancy exposing themselves to the harsh sun, or the assault of bugs. With this in mind, a fairly young hammock maker called Yellow Leaf Hammocks decided to create the Hammock Throne that essentially turns hammock into a furniture fit for the home while remaining totally outdoor-friendly (it’s weatherproof!).
Hammock Throne is a standalone furniture that fits Yellow Leaf Hammocks’ collection of 100 percent handwoven hammock, allowing you to place it in the living of a tiny city apartment, outdoor patio, or just about anywhere you fancy. Basically, it is a freestanding hammock like the Tammock we have seen earlier, except it is more for home as a furniture. OK. It is more of a chair, a hammock chair, to be precise, that also swivels 360 degrees, providing you with a “womb-like” comfort.
Beyond the awesome of the furniture, Yellow Leaf Hammocks, which was founded in 2011 by Thailand-based founders Rachel Connors and Joe Denim, has a bigger agenda. The duo wants to break the cycle of extreme poverty for the Mlabri people of Northern Thailand, particularly the women, by creating sustainable jobs for them.
Each hammock is 100 percent handwoven in Thailand by artisan weavers who are paid a stable, healthy income. More than 200 mothers are employed long-term, allowing them a stable job to help feed the family and get them out of the slavery of debt. So, not only these hammocks give you a place to chill, you’d be helping some unfortunate folks too. That’s win-win right there.
You can find Hammock Throne peddling for fund on Kickstarter where you can pre-order a unit for $1,299-1,499. That’s for the throne itself. As for awesome hammock, it is available in variety of colorways and patterns, goes for $199 a pop. You can also “design your own hammock” if you order it on Kickstarter. The campaign is funded and so, yeah, your pledge for a product is a pre-order.
