Often found hanging between a pair of trees overlooking a sandy beach at sunset, hammocks may be the world’s most potent therapeutic treatment next to glass of single malt and a filet. Ok, so we’re projecting just a bit. Yellow Leaf Hammocks takes their relaxation charge quite seriously, though, and every dream-swinger they make offers the promise of five key benefits: comfort, durability, beauty, strength, and craftsmanship. Their close-knit, free-flowing weaves are comfortable, waterproof, and can support up to 550lbs, while withstanding the elements without risk of damage or fading.

In fact, the all of their models are 100% hand-woven by expert artisan Mlabri weavers, part of a nearly extinct tribe native to Thailand that has embraced hammock making as a means for financial freedom. The name Yellow Leaf actually refers to the Banana leaves the culture used in making temporary shelters. So purchases not only benefit your psyche, but help the Mlabri too.

Three different styles are available including king, queen, and sitting-sized versions, with the latter being the smallest. Creative types can also commission custom hammocks produced according to their specs. Corona delivery not included.
