Fair Trade Federation Member

Hammock Boutique is a Member of the Fair Trade Federation. Hammock Boutique went through a rigorous screening and accreditation process to become a Fair Trade member. We see our Hammocks as an instrument of change in the communities we serve. The Mayan communities of the Yucatan, where we strive to empower indigenous mayan women and marginalized communities. We are not only having a tremendous impact on the artisans in our network but we are also offering great products to the public.

About Fair Trade Federation Membership:
"Fair trade is an approach to business and to development based on dialogue, transparency, and respect that seeks to create greater equity in the international trading system.


Fair trade supports farmers and craftspeople in developing countries who are socially and economically marginalized. These producers lack economic opportunity and often face steep hurdles in finding markets and customers for their goods.

Fair trade is much more than just trade. At the core of the fair trade model is a direct, cooperative, and in-depth relationship between buyers and sellers that keeps all of the principles of fair trade at the forefront."

What Does that Really Mean? When you buy Fair Trade products, communities are improved; nutritional needs met; health care costs are covered; the poor, especially women, are empowered; the environmental impact of production, sourcing, and transport is mitigated to the fullest extent possible. Such an impact is created because Fair Trade approaches development as a holistic process”.  www.fairtradefederation.org
