Q:

I looked at the pictures of the hammocks on the Yellow Leaf Hammock link on the groupon page. I see only a few colors (and none posted for the King size). Are these the only hammocks available? Are there other color choices for the Queen size?

Marah S.  asked on  Mar 2, 2013

A:

Hi Marah-- the Groupon promotion is for valid for the 3 designs shown on the Groupon page. You'll choose your hammock size (King or Queen) when buying your Groupon, then be able to select the design (Vineyard Haven, Big Sur, or Monticello) when redeeming your voucher on the Yellow Leaf website.

Q:

how do I hang it? The pictures look like they are using some kind of branches! What is the best way to secure it so that it's safe?

Hi Tamara- you can view some of the many ways to hang a hammock on our website here: www.yellowleafhammocks.com/laying-hammock-guidelines You can also click the Livechat box to talk with a hammocking expert on our site (in the lower righthand corner of your screen), but I'll provide a brief overview of the suggested hanging distances for each of our hammock sizes here: King, Queen, and Sitting: > The King-Size Hammock should be hung from 2 points that are 10-11 feet apart. > The Queen-size Hammock should be hung from 2 points that are 9-10 feet apart > The Sitting Hammock should be hung from 2 points that are 3.5-4 ft apart Let us know if we can answer any other questions! Happy Hammocking!

Q:

What percent of the money from the sale actually goes to the Mlabri weavers? I love supporting causes like this, but I'm always weary of how much money actually goes to the people making the product.

Elizabeth D.  asked on  Feb 28, 2013

A:

Hi Elizabeth! Great question and one that's important to ask! Approximately 40-50% of the sale price goes to the artisan. Hammock weaving provides a 650% increase in income over slash-and-burn agriculture, allowing each weaver to earn in a week what an entire family would earn from a month of back-breaking field labor. In their provice, weavers can even earn as much as a college-educated teacher. If interested, you can learn more about some of our artisans here: http://bit.ly/12efNiD We also have more information available here: http://www.kiva.org/partners/274 Of course, we'll be following this thread in case you have any other questions too. Thanks for supporting our campaign! Do Good. Relax.
