Outdoor-Indoor Saddle Swing
These Saddle Swings are equally at home indoors or in the yard! The Saddle Swing is lightweight and compact, and thus are perfect for enjoying the outdoors. Of course, kids love them too! The hammock-like swing is easy to take with you to hang during camping trips as well. The swings are handmade from a proprietary yarn designed and produced exclusively for this product with UV protection. The end result is a sophisticated resort-style look indoors or outdoors.
The swings are handmade by women, who are given the choice of working from home. The communities producing these swings are in desperate need of work. There is otherwise no prospects for employment. The women are mentored and taught how to crochet knit, in order to produce these beautiful swings. The workers are rewarded with fair pay.
The philosophy of the company is the belief in women's empowerment along with giving back to society. It is conscious of both social and ecological issues, with a strong commitment to community support and sustainability. The majority of the company's profits are reinvested in education and welfare programs. The whole mission is to have a completely transparent production process that is in opposition to sweatshops and child labor, as well as preserving traditional handmade techniques that celebrate the craftsperson's skills and empower them.
As a result of this beautiful mission, this company has been awarded the Butterfly Mark by Positive Luxury for a company-wide commitment to sustainability. The interactive Butterfly Mark showcases a company’s positive actions towards people and the planet.
