Hammock Boutique’s handcrafted hammocks are made in Yucatán, Mexico, using traditional Mayan patterns that have been passed down from generation to generation.
The one-of-a-kind hammocks are now featured at Lowe’s, thanks to the help of Lowe’s supplier diversity team. The team provided valuable guidance for the small, woman-owned business, helping the company deliver on its mission to provide employment and educational services for women in impoverished communities. Hammock Boutique reinvests 10 percent of proceeds into the local community for education and development programs.
“We don’t see our company as a hammock company,” said co-founder and owner Josefina Urzaiz. “We see ourselves as an instrument of change. The only way to break the generational poverty cycle in these communities is through educating the next generation.”
