Hammock Boutique is a socially responsible organization committed to the sustainable development of indigenous Mayans in Mexico.

 

Our business operates as a cooperative, whereby we provide the men and women from Mayan villages the raw material to hand-weave each one of our hammocks from the comfort of their homes and then collect the finished product upon completion. Because we only suggest color combinations to our weavers, the actual final design of the hammock is absolutely unique and an expression of the artist, that is “our weavers”.

 

The men and women we employ as weavers, work on the hammocks in order to supplement their family income. Since weaving is done at home, at their own individual schedules, working conditions are far better than working at a factory or in the fields. This work model allows them to weave their hammocks and take care of their children at the same time. Working at their own pace allows them the freedom to take a day off if necessary; they do so without the need to ask anyone’s permission or report to a supervisor. When they have finished weaving the hammocks, they deliver them to a company representative or our representative will pick up at their home. This model allows production to be a very family friendly job.

 

At Hammock Boutique, we provide our weavers with all the raw materials needed to build the hammocks and, therefore, there is absolutely no economic constraint or investment on the part of our Mayan craftsman. We believe this is a key advantage when compared to other sources of income for the people in these poor and sometimes remote villages in the Yucatan peninsula.
