FSO offers meticulously handcrafted hammocks for the socially conscious hanger! All hammocks are handmade in the very homes of our seamstresses, priding ourselves on superior craftsmanship as a small cottage vendor and avoiding mass factory production. Every hammock sold supports our continued efforts to create and grow sustainable high-wage jobs (paying 130% above the industry avg.) for skilled seamstresses across villages in Northern Thailand. Our drive is to not just blindly give money back to these communities, but empower women and their families through sustainable economic opportunities.
Handmade Quality over Mass Factory Production?
Our seamstresses use professional sewing techniques that are superior to those used in mass factory production. “One way I judge quality is by looking at the “hidden” seams. Many hammocks that are cheaply built hide ragged edges and unfinished seams on the inside. Flying Squirrel Outfitters is nipped and tucked with every seam expertly finished.” -Derek Hansen, The Ultimate Hang
Why do all the hammocks on Amazon look so similar?
Many traditional models are made in the same few factories in China with the same designs, same square stuff sack on the side, same sharp carabiners, the same looking straps or thin 6″ rope. Do you want to try something new and innovative? Do you care about sustainably manufactured products? Do you want to make an impact by just hanging in a hammock? If so, we are for you!100% HANDMADE – No mass factory production, created in the very homes of the seamstresses who made them – supports sustainable living wages for women in villages across Northern Thailand – Triple Stitched, 70D Durable Ultralight Parachute Nylon – SIZE (L 9.8ft x W 6.5ft) – Weight Capacity 450lbs
1st EVER FULLY ADJUSTABLE HAMMOCK: The pouch isn’t attached to the hammock and can slide along the body to adjust the size and your sitting position. You can create a hanging chair that allows you to sit more upright to more easily read or work on your cpu. NO OTHER HAMMOCK on the market offers this functionality – 1st adjustable hammock
PREMIUM NO SNAG CARABINERS: Smooth edges so no snags or damage to your hammock. Many hammocks offer the same dangerously sharp carabiners that can damage your gear
DOUBLE BARREL POUCH DESIGN – EASIEST SET UP: The double barrel pouch design allows you to set up and break down your hammock faster than with a side stuff sack, allowing it to NEVER TOUCH THE GROUND – keeping in cleaner! Carrying strap included on the side of pouch with a gear loop to easily attach to your pack while backpacking or traveling, NO OTHER HAMMOCK has this useful feature
WEBBING STRAPS INCLUDED: High quality 1″ thick set of webbing straps come with every hammock, and are much friendlier to trees than rope. Each strap has multiple loops and doesn’t require knots – We are a small operation trying to start up, but we have always felt it was unfair to offer a hammock without good suspension. We have read your reviews, and want to do right by the customer…STRAPS ARE ALWAYS INCLUDED!
