Nicaragua's Finest Hammock Collective

Hang-A-Hammock Collective (HAHC) is a young collective of artisans based in Masaya (Nicaragua, Central America) operating in a Social Business model. The members are between 18 and 35 years old. In their workshop, they produce, sell, and ship ethically and environmentally friendly hammocks, hanging chairs, macrame hanging cradles, and macrame baby swing chairs. All materials are sourced using fair-trade and sustainability principals.

About the Social Business Model

Unlike conventional businesses, the primary goal of HAHC is not to maximize profits. The main objective is to valorize the craft sector by improving the working conditions of the artisans involved both directly and indirectly in the production process. This model is not a charity or non-governmental organization (NGO). It is a Social Business. They operate using a profitable commercial model which means that the sustainability of the organization does not depend on grants, funds, donations or other financing programs.

HAHC implements everyday workplace ethics and social responsibility. Each member is regularly employed with healthcare, paid vacations, holidays, contributions to a retirement plan, and additional benefits. Socially and environmentally conscious business like this add tremendous value to the local and global communities. We at Kumquat Garden are incredibly proud to be partnered with this business and thank you for your role in supporting ventures like this that truly make a positive impact in the world.
