Whole Story Hammocks

The mission of Whole Story Hammocks is simple: alleviating poverty for families in third world countries. They approach this task using a full circle approach to giving. This means that they take a handcrafted product from a third-world country, and, through the sale of this product, address poverty in a sustainable way. This model allows them to address the issue of poverty in two different ways: through economic development, by employing and providing a fair wage to the Nicaraguan artisans that craft our hammocks, and through sustainable aid, where we provide a house for a family that has never had a place to call home.
