HOW TO HANG YOUR CHAIR HAMMOCK WITH A SPREADER BAR:
Hanging your Sitting Hammock with a Spreader Bar allows you to rotate 360 degrees and drift gently while you kick your feet up. We call it "Pivot Style!"
When you hang your hammock “Pivot Style” using the Spreader Bar, you only need one anchor point to hang it from! Easy hanging makes for easy hammocking!
Each Spreader Bar is handcrafted by a local artisan woodworker just outside our San Francisco HQ. Spreader Bar's are custom built per order and take 5-15 business days to ship.
Check here for some inspiration on how to hang our Sitting Hammock using the Spreader Bar!
OTHER WAYS TO "HANG":
Inside the Home: By drilling one hook into a ceiling beam and attaching to the loop at the top of your spreader bar.
Off of a Tree Branch: By wrapping a rope over the tree branch, then securing the rope to the loop at the top of your spreader bar.
Yellow Leaf is weaving hope and prosperity into the fabric of society in rural Thailand. 1.2 million
hill tribe members dwell on the lowest rung of society, denied human rights, citizenship and education, and susceptible to exploitation through sex trafficking, faux-primitive tourist shows, child labor and indentured servitude in toxic slash and burn agriculture. They subsist on less than $1/day, a staggering 83% below Thai standards of poverty. Yellow Leaf is working to empower this population by employing them as weavers, currently impacting more than 2,600 lives within two generations.
For every weaver Yellow Leaf employs, they remove (on average) one family of five from toxic slash a
nd burn forest clearing, effectively saving swaths of forest from destruction. Yellow Leaf's eco-friendliness extends to their products and business practices as well, where the hammocks are packaged in totes made from repurposed parachute fabric, shipments are offset through CarbonFund, collateral materials are printed on recycled paper using soy-based inks, and in a show of true commitment -- their office is entirely paperless!
Did your college ethics class teach you how to return dignity and self-determination to an entire po
pulation? No? The way we see it, that's about as ethically rich as it gets. Kudos to Yellow Leaf for compensating their weavers at 650% of average hill tribe income, thus creating high wage jobs for a marginalized group of people trapped in a cycle of extreme poverty, exploitation and degradation. Former slaves are being elevated to the Thai middle class and enjoying civil rights, citizenship and access to education and medical care.
Of the hundreds of Four Pillar models out there, the one utilized by Yellow Leaf Yellow takes a holi
stic approach to sustainability. They are committed to nourishing communities by promoting economic health, environmental stewardship, social equity and cultural vitality, aiming to impact the region and community as a whole.

Yellow Leaf is a purpose-driven, market-based company.
By building a global sales channel for our extraordinary hammocks, we create stable, high wage weaving jobs and directly empower impoverished communities to build a brighter future.
We strike at the root of social inequity for marginalized hill tribe groups by creating high-wage jobs- empowering weavers and creating a ripple effect that combats associated social ills (e.g., exploitation, sex trafficking, toxic agriculture, malnutrition, disease, civil rights
denials). By adapting weavers� artisan skills to creating stylish eco-luxury home goods, we enrich the entire community and tackle sustainability on a comprehensive level (economic, environmental, social & cultural).
Here in the U.S., we are meeting key consumer trends - the desires for customization, unique craftsmanship, connectedness & �unplugging.� Yellow Leaf has built a playful, classic lifestyle brand on the excellence of our �insanely cozy� eco-luxury hammocks (independent of our mission). We are reframing the socially conscious purchase as one you make out of desire, not guilt or generosity
