The motivation behind Yellow Leaf Hammock's company is simple: by creating and selling the most awesome hammocks on earth, they create sustainable weaving jobs in marginalized communities. Their hammocks are created with soft, weather-proof and faded proof yarn that are meant to last. They also provide hammock straps and stands to satisify their customer entirely. By providing mothers in Thailand with jobs, they are able to help pull these women out of poverty and, hopefully, be able to sustain their families. They believe that job creation is an important key to ending global poverty and operate on the philosophy that a "hand up" makes a bigger difference than a handout.
